Ecosystem Restoration Grant Program Workshops Offered

The Vermont Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) is offering four workshops in September following the release of the next Request for Proposals (RFP) for the DEC Ecosystem Restoration Grant Program.  There are exciting new changes in the RFP as a result of the availability of Clean Water Fund dollars and feedback from many of our partners. DEC Staff will review changes to the RFP, opportunities for new collaborations, and resources available to identify the highest priority projects.  Watershed Coordinators as well as other DEC staff will be available to answer questions, and discuss local issues, priorities, and concerns, and the best opportunities for successful grant applications.
