Community Conservation Grants
The Richland County Conservation Commission provides a Community Conservation grant program for neighborhood groups, organizations, and agencies to protect natural resources, improve water quality, and enhance active living through trails. Innovative solutions such as low impact development or green infrastructure activities are eligible as are educational programs that promote conservation and environmental awareness in Richland County.
Grants are available up to $20,000 and require a 20% in-kind and cash match. All projects must demonstrate a clear public benefit. The deadline for submittal is early February of each year. If approved, funds become available in July. For more information, click on Grant Criteria and Application below.
