MaineCF awards $15,000 to PCSWCD

The Maine Community Foundation has awarded $469,623 to 25 conservation initiatives around the state.

MaineCF’s Conservation for All grant program awarded $186,034 to 13 nonprofit organizations that build strong connections between Maine people and its land and water. The Piscataquis County Soil and Water Conservation District of Dover-Foxcroft was awarded $15,000 for land and trail maintenance and to expand access to community forests.

The Fund for Maine Land Conservation grant program started in the early 1990s. In 2018, MaineCF closed the Fund for Maine Land Conservation grant program and in its place created two new land conservation grant programs: Conservation for All, which offers general support, and Maine Land Protection, which offers support for land acquisitions and easements.
