The South Mountain Partnership has opened a 2015 funding round for its Mini-Grant Program, and is currently accepting inquiries from interested and eligible applicants. A pre-application form is required, and must be submitted by a June 1st deadline; applicants will then be invited to submit complete applications to a competitive final round by a July 31st deadline. The Partnership’s Mini-Grant Program enhances partner capacity and catalyzes projects on that ground that sustain the South Mountain landscape’s sense of place by protecting and promoting the region’s Landscape Resources. Municipalities, municipal agencies, counties, academic institutions and authorized non-profit organizations are all eligible applicants, and interested parties are encouraged to contact Jonathan Peterson to discuss potential applications. More information can be found on the Mini-Grant page.
