- PRF grants should leverage other funds or in-kind resources toward total project costs.
- If the project is/will be ongoing, PRF funds should only be a resource for start-up/pilot or a specific time-limited component of a larger project.
- Applicants should have plans for sustainability beyond the PRF grant for on-going projects.
- Grant funds may be used to support “administrative costs” including share of staff costs when directly related to accomplishing the PRF-related project.
- Grant requests may be in any of the four focus areas:
- Improved surface water quality
- Enhanced fish and wildlife management and habitats
- Expanded public access
- Increased citizen’s awareness about their roles in protecting these resources.
- Grant requests may address any of the four focus areas listed above. To provide applicants with additional guidance, the Pigeon River Fund Board has the following expectations for grants:
- Priority for funding for requests that:
- Support efforts to address water quality issues in streams or watersheds that are identified as priorities in county (or other authority) watershed action plans.
- Promote collaboration or coordination on projects that address comprehensive issues and will have long-term impact.
- Encourage education and awareness of water quality issues preferably focused on helping individuals understand how their actions relate to the overall health of the river basin.
- Install water quality BMPs or other stream improvements that are part of a coordinated multi-faceted effort and will result in significant improvement in water quality.
- Lower priority
- Scattered projects (including demonstration BMPs or other projects) not related to coordinated effort to improve priority streams/watershed in that community.
- Government agency operating support, especially staffing.
- Projects related to regulation enforcement which is the responsibility of the government.
- PRF grant funds are not appropriate for any projects and activities related to or in support of litigation in any administrative or judicial forum.
