Conservation Grant Program - 2022

The Monroe Conservation District (MCD) is very excited to announce our new Conservation Grants Program. For the first time in a very long time, we are offering grants to the public for conservation related projects to be implemented in Monroe County. MCD seeks proposals for a variety of projects that have a direct impact to the improvement of our natural resources through hands on education programs or projects that directly impact the environment. Private Landowner/ Community grants will be awarded up to $600 and Ag Conservation grants will be awarded up to $1,200. All projects are awarded at a 75% cost-share rate meaning all project totals must include 25% match by the applicant (can be in the form of cash, in-kind services, materials, etc).

Prior to completing your application form, please review the criteria for the grant program. Please review this information carefully as it may prove valuable when designing your project and submitting your application. Please note the deadlines and signatures required for the application. Incomplete or ineligible applications will not be considered for funding.

Applications must be received by the first Tuesday of each month to be considered for review and awarded that same month. All applicants will be notified regardless of the outcome no later than the first of the following month.

Awardees will receive their funds once final reports have been submitted and practices have been verified by Conservation District staff. All projects must be completed by December 16, 2022.

If you have any further questions pertaining to the grant application process, please call 734.241.8540 ext. 5. Pleasae click here for more information and the Application.
