New Hampshire Conservation District Climate Resilience Grant

The 10 New Hampshire Conservation Districts are thrilled to announce the 2024 grant round of the NH Conservation Districts Climate Resilience Grant.  The mission of the NH Conservation Districts Climate Resilience Grant is to support and empower local farmers to build climate resilience throughout the Granite State.  This will be done through reducing the impact of agriculture on climate change (mitigation) through greenhouse gas emissions reduction and carbon sequestration, and to increasing the resiliency of New Hampshire Farms in a changing climate (adaptation), while meeting farm’s conservation goals and needs.  Extreme weather events, frequent and prolonged droughts, and increased pest pressures are increasing intensifying for NH farms.  This grant though the NH County Conservation Districts seeks to support farmers in meeting those challenges.  Funds are available for projects that mitigate the impact of agriculture on climate change and enhance the on-farm adaptations to projected climate conditions.  Preference will be given to projects that can demonstrate strong potential in mitigation and adaptation.  The application deadline for the 2024 grant round has closed.  Please check back for 2025 grant information.
