Watershed Mini Grant Program

Each year, the Western Pennsylvania Conservancy accepts proposals for its Watershed Mini Grant Program, which provides assistance to the region’s grassroots watershed groups and organizations.

The Watershed Mini Grants can be used to cover expenses in three areas:

  • Water Quality Monitoring ($3,000 limit)
  • Organizational Promotion and Outreach ($2,000 limit)
  • Restoration Projects ($3,000 limit)

Funding for the program is provided by the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation.

The program offers funding to watershed organizations in the following counties:

Allegheny, Armstrong, Beaver, Blair, Bucks, Butler, Cambria, Cameron, Centre, Clarion, Clearfield, Clinton, Crawford, Elk, Fayette, Franklin, Greene, Indiana, Jefferson, Juniata, Lawrence, Mercer, McKean, Potter, Tioga, Venango, Washington and Westmoreland counties.

The application period for the Conservancy’s 2018 Watershed Mini Grant Program is currently closed.
