Announcing a New Grant to Support Maine Land Trusts Impacted by COVID19

It is with excitement and deep gratitude that we announce a brand new grant opportunity for Maine land trusts. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused significant disruption in the work land trusts do to conserve Maine land.  Land trusts are being forced to operate in new ways, resulting in unexpected costs and organizational stress in an uncertain funding environment.  To help ensure that Maine’s land trusts can continue to provide important benefits at this critical time, a very generous individual has provided funds to MCHT, which will be regranted to selected Maine land trusts to offset expenses related to this disruption.  These are one-time grants that will be awarded in the late fall of 2020. Between 15 and 20 grants of up to $10,000 will be awarded on a competitive basis. Funds can be for future expenses or, providing you can submit proper documentation, can cover unanticipated 2020 expenses you incurred as a result of the COVID19 pandemic. Please refer to the Guidelines and Application for additional details and contact Warren Whitney if you still have questions.
