The Brandywine Conservancy is pleased to announce the launch of the Brandywine Creek Greenway’s (BCG) new Mini-Grant Program for 2020-2021. The program is funded by a recent grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) Community Conservation Partnership Program Environmental Stewardship Fund, administered by the Bureau of Recreation and Conservation (BRC). With these funds, the Brandywine Conservancy will be able to award grants of $2,000 to $10,000, up to a total amount of $40,000, for projects that will support and advance the goals and objectives of the BCG Strategic Action Plan (2014). The first grant funding round opens July 30, 2020 with applications due by September 15, 2020.
The Mini-Grant Program will fund small projects that improve parks, open space and community trails, and will advance priority conservation and recreation projects identified in the BCG's Strategic Action Plan (Part 1 and Part 2), plus other publicly vetted municipal planning documents. Eligible applicants include Pennsylvania non-profit organizations with tax-exempt status 501(c)(3), municipalities, counties, and some educational institutions.
