COLT’s weekly land trust news
August 15th, 2016
Good afternoon and Happy Monday everyone,
It feels good to be back and sharing Monday news again! Thank you for your flexibility while Mike and I were both out of town. We have a lot of interesting items to catch up on:
OWEB’s 2016 land acquisition grant cycle is now open. Applications are due October 18th, and must be submitted through OWEB’s online database. Applicants are required to complete a pre-application consultation. Land acquisition guidance, forms, templates and information about the pre-application consultation are available at: http://www.oregon.gov/OWEB/GRANTS/Pages/acquisition_grants.aspx
Based upon the recent spending plan decisions made by OWEB, the agency has approximately $4.16 million left for acquisition grants for their October deadline. The board will make their decisions at the April 2017 meeting.
In addition, the Land Trust Alliance (LTA) is gearing up for the 5th year of the Oregon Advancing Conservation Excellence (ACE) grant program. Below are links to an outline of the grant opportunities available as well as a program timeline:
Catherine Waterston with LTA can be of assistance if you have questions or are looking for more information about the ACE grant program. She may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please feel free to contact Mike or I if you have any questions/concerns, and we wish you all the best for an enjoyable week!
