South Mountain Mini-Grant Round Has Opened!

The South Mountain Partnership Mini-Grant program, administered by the Appalachian Trail Conservancy (ATC), has been awarded grant funds from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) and will be accepting grant applications until the program deadline of July 31, 2012. This program provides grants that communities and organizations can use to preserve and promote their natural and cultural assets.

An in-person and online grant workshop will be available to those interested.  An RSVP is required to attend either of these workshops and can be done by clicking on the button to the right or calling Kim Williams at the ATC office at 717.258.5771.  The workshop will lay out details of the program and application and allow participants to ask questions.  The two grant workshop details are as follows:

  • March 29th, 2012 Workshop: The first workshop will be in-person at the South Mountain Partnership’s quarterly meeting on March 29th at 3:30 p.m. at the Shippensburg University Conference Center and will last under an hour.
  • May 23rd, 2012 Workshop: This online webinar will be similar to the March 29th workshop but will allow participants to access the workshop from a computer.  The workshop will begin at 4 p.m. and will last under an hour.
