DNR Opens Additional Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Grant Application Period

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.
