St. Louis Community Stewardship Grant Program
Got a habitat problem in your community? Get help solving it. MDC’s Community Stewardship Grant program supports urban wildlife habitat improvement, encourages organizational partnerships for land stewardship and engages urban residents in community conservation through volunteering.
Program funding is available to non-profit organizations, parks departments and other land-management entities and volunteer groups within the St. Louis metropolitan area. Eligible areas include St. Louis City, St. Louis County, St. Charles County and Jefferson County, and incorporated areas (in municipalities or townships) of Franklin, Lincoln and Warren Counties.
Projects Involving Cost-Share or In-Kind Contributions Preferred
Projects eligible for funding include (but aren’t limited to) stream restoration, prairie or native warm-season grass reconstruction, or exotic species control and replanting. Grant requests should not exceed $10,000, and preference will be given to projects that involve cost-share or in-kind contributions.
Deadline is September 14, 2012
