The Watershed Institute is pleased to announce that we will be partnering with The Nature Conservancy, together in collaboration with Sustainable Jersey, on this year’s Roots for Rivers Reforestation Grant and Technical Assistance Program.
This program provides grants between $1,000 and $20,000 to support efforts to undertake floodplain reforestation initiatives. Program participants also receive technical assistance with designing their restoration projects. Eligible entities include nonprofit organizations, conservation groups, government agencies, municipalities, and school districts. Submissions by private individuals, as well as project sites on private land, are not eligible for funds. Eligible expenses include trees and shrubs, tubes and stakes, and up to two delivery fees.
