NEWARK, OH (July 12, 2019) – Since 1944, Licking County Soil & Water Conservation District exists to promote wise use of our land and water. During those 75 years, Licking Soil & Water has been working with countless landowners to manage and protect natural resources on public and private lands. This year, for their 75th Anniversary, Licking Soil & Water is reflecting on its history in and impact on Licking County.
The Licking Soil & Water’s announces a new Mini-Grant program for up to $1,000 for conservation projects within Licking County. The Mini-Grant program is made possible through the Licking Soil & Water 75th Anniversary Fund. This new program will award up to $5,000 in 2019.
The program is open to non-profit organizations such as schools, watershed groups, local government entities, municipalities, community groups (including governing bodies and associations such as HOA’s and condo associations) and civic associations.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until December 1, 2019 and will be awarded on a first come, first served basis. Projects can include habitat improvement, equipment for environmental education, green infrastructure, pollinator or native plant installation and soil improvement initiatives.
Program details and application are available at www.LickingSWCD.com.
