Executive Director Notes: Finding the Green
Dear Coalition Supporters and Friends:
I’m happy to report that following months of updates and re-designs, the Pennsylvania Growing Greener Coalition’s guide to Finding the Green is once again available with updated information!
As more funding programs are developed and current programs depleted or eliminated, it has become increasingly difficult for non-profits and local governments to understand and access existing funding opportunities.
Finding the Green is meant to help.
The purpose of this single-source guide is to provide an overview of funding opportunities that may benefit the work you do. The guide contains a thorough listing of state funding programs for conservation, preservation and recreation projects.
In addition to a list of specific grant opportunities, you’ll find tips on how to apply and where to go for more information.
The guide is available for download on our website and will be updated regularly as we gather new information so be sure to check back often. We will also have a limited number of print copies that are available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Please contact me if you are interested.
Thank you to everyone who helped compile this guide, especially the state agencies and staff who assisted in ensuring the guide is as complete as possible.
As always, feedback on its content and usefulness and suggestions for improvements are always welcome.
Also, in other exciting Coalition news the Executive Committee is expanding from seven to ten members. The three additional members are:
- Tim Herd, CPRE, executive director, Pennsylvania Recreation and Park Society
- Andrew Loza, executive director, Pennsylvania Land Trust Association
- Marci Mowery, president, Pennsylvania Parks and Forest Foundation
As we ramp up the campaign for Growing Greener III, please join me in thanking the Executive Committee for its ongoing leadership and for the wealth of knowledge, experience and statewide influence each member brings.
On that note, we are anticipating a busy fall and winter, and I look forward to working with you to protect our water, conserve our land and keep Pennsylvania Growing Greener.
In the meantime, don’t forget to download your copy of Finding the Green or contact me for print versions.
