Virginia’s United Land Trusts will host agency and nonprofit speakers to provide an overview of federal grant programs most relevant to land conservation. Applying, receiving, and managing a federal grant is a 2-5 year proposition. What factors should your organization consider before applying? What are some of the ingredients for success?
VaULT’s role will be a convener to make sure Virginia’s conservation community has the structure, network, and access to experts to bring in as much federal funding to Virginia as possible. *VaULT will not be writing grants.
