New Hampshire Conservation District Climate Resilience Grant

The 10 NH Conservation Districts are thrilled to announce the second grant round of the NH Conservation Districts Climate Resilience Grant!  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 grant will provide a cost share program for farms – grant covers up to 75% of project costs not to exceed $10,000/farm. Farmers are responsible for covering 25% of project costs. Please note that the grant is comprised of two different funding pools: one for regenerative and ecological practices (e.g. soil health, water efficiency, integrated pest management) and one for renewable energy and energy efficiency projects. Each pool has limited funds and will be competitive.

Upper Valley Farmland Protection Initiative   

If you own or rent farmland in the towns of Bath, Haverhill, Piermont, Orford, Lyme, Dorchester, Hanover, Canaan, Orange, Lebanon, Enfield and Grafton (UVLT service area), you may be eligible for funding to conserve that land through UVLT’s Upper Valley Farmland Protection Initiative, a Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP), which was formed to provide funding for the protection of our vital farmland in Grafton County that may not have met traditional funding requirements.
