Cost-share grants available

Two cost-share grants (one in each county, in the amount of $1,000 each) are available to landowners who agree to establish or enhance at least one acre of grassland habitat to be used as a demonstration site.  The $1,000 grant can be used for purchase of seed, site preparation, rental of equipment for site prep, etc.  In addition, the landowner will receive free signage to designate the area as a demonstration area and explain the components of wildlife habitat. 

SCWF will arrange designated days (no more than 4-5 over two years) for other interested landowners to tour the property and learn how to replicate habitat enhancement techniques.  Landowners are also free to organize additional tours on their own during the two-year period, or afterwards.

If you are interested in applying for a cost-share grant, please complete the application below.  If selected for consideration, a member of the SCWF staff will contact you to discuss further details.
