    REMINDER: Chesapeake Land and Water Initiative LOIs due TOMORROW, Tuesday, November 14

    [APOLOGIES FOR CROSS-POSTINGS]

    Good afternoon, friends and colleagues in the Chesapeake:

    Just a reminder that the deadline for Letters of Inquiry (LOIs) to the 2017-2018 Chesapeake Land and Water Initiative grant program is tomorrow, November 14 at 5 pm EST.

    We look forward to receiving ideas from focused regions within the watershed for projects to help accelerate land conservation and stewardship that directly benefit water quality. The guidelines for submitting an LOI are attached here, along with an FAQ on working within our online system. Additional information about the Initiative and previously funded projects are available here.

    If you’re planning to apply, and you still have questions about your specific project concept or the process overall, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I should be available by phone most of the day tomorrow, with just a couple of exceptions.

    Thanks for all you do!

    All the best,

    Jennifer

    Chesapeake Bay Land and Water Initiative 2017-2018 grant program: Request for Letters of Inquiry

    Request for Letters of Inquiry

    Chesapeake Bay Land and Water Initiative Grants Program

    Colleagues and friends in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed:

    We are pleased to announce a new round of grantmaking for 2017-2018 through the Chesapeake Bay Land and Water Initiative.

    A partnership of the Chesapeake Bay Funders Network and the Land Trust Alliance, the Chesapeake Bay Land and Water Initiative seeks projects that will accelerate land conservation and stewardship on conserved lands to protect and restore water quality in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed.

    We invite Letters of Inquiry (LOIs) from eligible organizations undertaking projects that positively impact water quality and meet the stated goals and interests of the Initiative’s grantmaking program.

    The full Request for LOIs, with further details, is attached to this post and also available here. Learn about projects funded in our inaugural 2016-2017 grant round here. Also attached are general FAQs for operating the Alliance’s online application system.

    Funding requests of $10,000-30,000 will be considered, and approximately $180,000 will be available in this second year of the program. LOIs will be accepted through November 14, 2017, and successful applicants will be invited in late December 2017 to submit full proposals for consideration.

    Prospective grantees are invited and encouraged to attend a conference call and webinar on Wednesday, October 11 at 10:30 am to learn more about the grantmaking program and LOI process. More information and registration is available here.

    If you have questions or need more information after reviewing the Request for LOIs, please contact Jennifer Miller Herzog, Chesapeake Program Manager at the Land Trust Alliance at jmillerherzog@lta.org or 406-580-6410.

Hey... where's the rest?

As we transfer data from the old platform to the new one, we're taking baby steps. If it seems like something is missing, we'll likely be added it over the next few weeks. If you need something in particular, feel free to ask.
