Matching grants available to help support lake’s tributory habitats
VERMONT — Grants are now available to support projects that advance long-term or permanent physical enhancements to aquatic and riparian habitat in the tributaries of Lake Champlain through the Lake Champlain and Tributaries Restoration Fund at the Vermont Community Foundation.
Projects must be located in Vermont on a tributary of Lake Champlain, with a preference for projects located on a major tributary (i.e., the Lamoille, Missisquoi or Winooski rivers), or a lesser tributary going into one of these. High-impact projects on smaller waters may also be considered. Matching funds are required.
Applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 15, and applicants will be notified of decisions by mid-March 2016. For more information or to apply, visit www.vermontcf.org/availablegrants.
