Grants of up to $30,000 to New Hampshire nonprofit organizations, government agencies, schools, and scout groups for the conservation and preservation of the environment. Funding is intended to encourage partnerships and programs that promote the sustainability of the state's natural resources and yield “on the ground” results. Projects that incorporate a long-term stewardship perspective will be given priority.

The State Conservation Committee's Conservation Grant Program supports and promotes programs and partnerships that protect, restore and enhance the state's valuable natural resources. Competitive grants are awarded annually to physical and tangible environmental projects that foster stewardship and the sustainability of New Hampshire's natural environment.

The Conservation Grant Program's six focus areas include:

  • Water Quality and Quantity: Restore, enhance, maintain or protect.
  • Wildlife Habitat: Create, restore, enhance, manage or protect.
  • Soil Conservation and Flooding: Reduce or prevent erosion or improve soils.
  • Best Management Practices: Plan and implement for agriculture, storm or forestry.
  • Conservation Planning: Accomplish a conservation project or outcome that includes a public involvement component.
  • Land Conservation: Permanent land protection through conservation easement or fee acquisition and/or associated transaction and stewardship costs.

For more information on focus areas, see:

Projects on public and private land are eligible with the signed consent and approval of the appropriate governing body or landowner(s).
