Grants of up to $15,000 and technical support to USA nonprofit organizations, land trusts, and tribes in multiple states to address climate change and land conservation issues. Funding is intended to build organizational capacity and support environmental stewardship initiatives. Eligible applicants for Open Space Institute grants are located in Alabama, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Maryland, Maine, Mississippi, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Tennessee, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia. Land Trust Alliance grants and technical support are available for projects in all states except Oregon, Washington, and Idaho.
Through a collaboration between Open Space Institute and Land Trust Alliance, funding is available in the 2022 grant round to help land trusts, other not-for-profit organizations, and state and federally recognized Tribes integrate climate science into strategic land protection plans or forest stewardship plans. Land trusts may also apply for strategic conservation planning or communications technical support from the Land Trust Alliance.
The program aims to support and build the capacity of land trusts and other groups that conserve and steward land to integrate climate change into land protection and management decisions. The program will support the development of climate-informed land conservation, stewardship or communications plans that address one or more of the following issues: habitat resilience, carbon mitigation or community adaptation to climate impacts such as stronger storms, flooding, drought, fire or extreme heat.
OSI’s Catalyst Program currently focuses on addressing the following climate issues: habitat resilience, forest carbon storage and sequestration, and community resilience to climate impacts such as flooding. The program supports conservation groups and communities by offering planning grants and technical assistance, authoring guidance documents, and hosting workshops.
Projects should achieve one or more of the following deliverables:
