Overview:

Conservation Workshop Grants are essential to building local capacity in vulnerable communities and improving conservation efforts at a local and national scale America.

Conservation Workshop Grants cover travel expenses, meals and accommodations, room rentals, materials, and other related costs. Administrative costs are no more than 15 percent of the grant and applicants may request up to $7,500 for the proposed training.
