Grand River Conservation Foundation grants are now available


Applications are now being accepted from community groups and schools for Community Conservation Grants given out by the Grand River Conservation Foundation and the Grand River Conservation Authority.

Each year grants of up to $1,000 are awarded to qualified groups (must be a registered charity), or up to $500 for elementary schools, undertaking conservation projects in communities throughout the Grand River watershed. Eligible projects must be tangible and available for the use or benefit of the entire community.
