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.

  • Water Quality and Quantity: Restore, enhance, maintain or protect.

  • 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.
