Grants available to help protect, restore Vermont watersheds; application deadline Nov. 20


MONTPELIER, Vermont — A total of $70,000 in grants is available to municipalities, local governmental agencies, non-profit organizations and citizen groups for projects that help to protect and restore Vermont's watersheds.

Rick Hopkins of the Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation says many types of projects are eligible, including those that protect or restore water quality, shorelines or fish and wildlife habitats.

Grants are available in three categories: education and outreach; planning, assessment, inventory, monitoring; and on-the-ground implementation.

The Vermont Watershed Grants Program is a joint project of DEC and the Fish and Wildlife Department.

The program, funded by the sale of conservation license plates, has funded 351 watershed projects around the state in 1998.

The application deadline is Nov. 20.

The application guide and application forms are available online at: http://www.watershedmanagement.vt.gov/lakes/htm/lp_watershedgrants.htm
