The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) has opened an additional application period for Knowles-Nelson Stewardship grants to eligible nonprofit conservation organizations (NCOs). These grants help fund the acquisition of land.
Applications are due Friday, Nov. 19, 2021 for the following subprograms:
- Natural area grants
- Habitat area grants
- Stream bank protection grants
- State trail grants
The DNR will consider all complete applications received or post marked by Nov. 19. Any organization considering a fall application should contact the regional project manager before applying. Acquisitions that will require multiple appraisals or a more comprehensive review may be deferred until the 2023 funding cycle, which opens in early spring 2022.
Application materials are available on the DNR website: dnr.wisconsin.gov/topic/Stewardship/ApplyNCO.
