The New Hampshire State Conservation Committee (SCC) is pleased to announce the opening of FY2023 Conservation Moose Plate Grants. Grant application information and program requirements are available on the SCC website SCC.nh.gov.
Grant funds are available for projects that support and promote programs and partnerships that protect, restore, and enhance the state’s valuable natural resources.
Grant applications are due on September 9, 2022. Awards will be announced in December 2022, and funding will be available to successful applicants in July 2023.
Eligible applicants include municipalities, County Conservation Districts, qualified nonprofit organizations engaged in conservation programs, public and private schools (kindergarten through 12), County Cooperative Extension natural resource programs, and scout groups.
Since 1946, the NH State Conservation Committee, a State of NH Department of Agriculture Markets and Foods affiliate, distributes Conservation Moose Plate funds to support conservation activities that protect agricultural and natural resources and provides conservation leadership, guidance, and coordination to the County Conservation Districts.
The SCC receives a percentage of funds raised through the sale of Conservation License Plates, known as “Moose Plates”. All funds raised through the purchase of Moose Plates are used for the promotion, protection, and investment in New Hampshire’s natural, cultural and historic resources.
