NACD Announces Launch of District Grants Application Period

Thu, 21 Oct 2021 10:16:20 CDT

NACD Announces Launch of District Grants Application Period The National Association of Conservation Districts (NACD) announced the launch of its application period for the 2022 Friends of NACD District Grants Program.
Now in its third round of funding, the Friends of NACD District Grants Program is an initiative of the NACD District Operations and Member Services (DOMS) Committee. The 2022 program will award eight grants, up to $2,500 each, to conservation districts to conduct new activities or test novel approaches to their operations.
Past grantees have implemented projects that have helped to enhance their visibility within their communities, reach new clients and grow their partnerships. Examples include the Start Farming Mentorship Program started by the Duval Soil and Water Conservation District, a 2021 grantee in Jacksonville, Fla., and a recycling bin for agricultural chemical containers constructed by the Butte Soil and Water Conservation District, a 2020 grantee in Arco, Idaho.
“Thanks to the generous donations to Friends of NACD, this year’s District Grants Program doubles the number of grants we’re able to award from four grants each of the previous two years, to eight grants this year,” said Franklin Williams, chair of the NACD DOMS Committee. “I’m honored to announce this opportunity to help conservation districts fund new, creative initiatives to support their customers and deliver locally-led conservation practices.”
The Friends of NACD program was established in 2009 to enable individuals and organizations to support the nation’s nearly 3,000 conservation districts through cash donations to NACD.
