Acceptance of Applications for Technical Assistance Grants Through the Growing Greener Program

[31 Pa.B. 5321]

   As part of the 3rd year of the Department of Environmental Protection's (Department) Growing Greener Program, applications are now being accepted for Technical Assistance Grants (TAG). The Environmental Stewardship and Watershed Protection Act authorizes the Department to make grants available for technical assistance to eligible organizations involved in implementing watershed conservation efforts.

   With an increasing number of organizations interested in watershed protection and the limited level of public technical assistance available, a method is needed for providing expertise in legal, data and program management, engineering and scientific areas. TAG will provide funding to regional and Statewide nonprofit organizations to reimburse them for costs of providing technical assistance to other organizations that are eligible for Growing Greener Grants. These technical assistance providers, through partnering with other private and public watershed conservation organizations, will facilitate the use of Growing Greener Grants and other sources of support for watershed conservation.

   Eligible applicants include: 1) counties, authorities and municipalities; 2) county conservation districts; 3) watershed organizations, established to promote watershed conservation efforts and recognized by the Department; and 4) other authorized organizations, including nonprofit entities involved in research, restoration, rehabilitation, planning, education and other activities that further the protection, enhancement, conservation, preservation or enjoyment of this Commonwealth's environmental, conservation and recreation resources. The area expected to be served by the TAG applicants should include a broad geographic extent, for example, a major river basin. The assistance to be offered should include at least one of the major areas of expertise.

   The deadline for submitting TAG applications to the Department Grants Center is November 9, 2001. A grant-writing workshop is planned for the second annual Pennsylvania Watershed Conference on October 5--6 at the Resort at Split Rock, Lake Harmony, PA.

   To request an application package or for more information about the Technical Assistance Grants or about the Watershed Conference, visit the Growing Greener Program website at, send an e-mail to, contact the Department Grants Center at (717) 705-5400 or write Department Grants Center, 15th Floor, Rachel Carson State Office Building, 400 Market Street, P. O.
