FUNDING OPPORTUNITY FROM STATE LAND CONSERVATION FUND

(HONOLULU) – The DLNR, through its Legacy Land Conservation Program, is now accepting applications for grants to acquire and preserve land that has natural, environmental, recreational, scenic, cultural, agricultural production, or historic value, including park and trail systems that provide access to such land.  Approximately $5.9 million is expected to be available for awards during the current grant cycle.

 

The Land Conservation Fund is a valuable tool for conserving and protecting Hawaiʻi’s natural beauty and all natural resources for the benefit of present and future generations. Grants from the Land Conservation Fund support efforts by state agencies, counties, and nonprofit land conservation organizations to acquire land and protect resources for public benefit. 

Applications for land acquisition grants are due December 12, 2022.
