The New York State Soil and Water Conservation Committee, in partnership with New York State Department of Environmental Conservation invites Soil and Water Conservation Districts, working in partnership with regional watershed groups/coalitions, to submit applications for funding under the Community Resiliency Training Programs opportunity. Program funds are available for Post Flood Emergency Stream Intervention, North Atlantic Aquatic Connectivity Collaborative, and Roadside Ditch Maintenance training events.
New York State Soil and Water Conservation Districts working in partnership with regional watershed groups or coalitions are eligible to submit applications for funding under this RFA. Regional watershed groups include any watershed-based organization with established by-laws for which Soil and Water Conservation Districts are considered members. Training may be conducted anywhere in the watershed and may be provided by any qualified member of the group/coalition.
Proposals for funding must conform to the format provided through the Grants Gateway. Applications will be accepted in Grants Gateway until funds are exhausted. Faxed, mailed, or emailed proposals will not be accepted.
Multiple Watershed Groups
If more than one Watershed Group is included on a single application, the total cannot exceed $25,000. Watershed Groups may designate any Soil and Water Conservation District to apply on their behalf, even if the applicant District is not a member of the watershed group. However, if a District is selected to apply on behalf of more than one Watershed Group, they may elect to submit separate applications for each watershed for which each may request up to $25,000. No Watershed Group may be listed on more than one open contract. Therefore, if more than one Watershed Group is part of a joint application, all training must be completed before either Watershed Group is eligible to reapply.
