About this funder:



Goals: The Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) protects, conserves, and restores the natural resources of the Commonwealth. To fulfill this mission, Matthew A. Beaton, Secretary of EEA, makes available funding for the FY 2020 Conservation Partnership Grant Program. This program provides funding to assist non-public, not-for-profit corporations and conservation districts in acquiring and holding interests in lands suitable for conservation or recreation purposes. 

The Conservation Partnership Grant Program is a component of the Baker Administration’s goal of providing outdoor recreational opportunities to every Massachusetts resident. This BID is part of the Administration’s efforts to permanently preserve highly valuable natural resources within the Commonwealth. It is a reimbursement program.


The Conservation Partnership Grant Program can help not-for-profit groups acquire interests in land for conservation or recreation purposes. Potential projects fall into one of two categories:

  • Acquisition of the fee interest in land or a conservation restriction
  • Due diligence for land or a conservation restriction that was donated to you

The grant award will not exceed $85,000 for acquisitions and $10,000 for due diligence for gifts.
