Applications are being accepted for the Fayette County Conservation District’s (FCCD) 5th annual Conservation and Education Grant.

Community members can receive up to $2,000 for local projects that encourage agricultural, conservation, and environmental initiatives around the county.

To get those creative green juices flowing, here are some examples of what funding can be used for:

  • Classroom supplies
  • Field trip or field day costs
  • School or community gardens
  • Outdoor classroom space
  • Trash cleanup
  • Invasive plant removal
  • Conservation camp tuition
  • Other projects + events will still be considered

You might recall that this is just one of the ~12 programs hosted by the FCCD. Read our feature to learn how the organization aims to bridge the gap between the local community and various state + federal programs.
