The Friends of South Mountain Partnership (FOSMP) and the Appalachian Trail Conservancy has funding available to support initiatives within our community that further the goals of the Partnership and advance the capacity of partners throughout the region. This small-scale funding opportunity is intended to support projects not traditionally eligible for the SMP Mini-Grant program.

Example projects and initiatives are shared below, but all projects with connections to conserving landscape resources, promoting landscape resources, and/or connecting people and organizations with common goals around conservation are encouraged to apply.
