2016 Project Solicitation Guideline

Project Proposals may be submitted by permit-holders, municipalities, non-governmental organizations, private companies, research institutions, state and local agencies and individuals who are in a position to carry out the project they are proposing. If you are submitting a Project Proposal, all items are required.


Project Concepts are ideas for projects that the board might consider funding. Project Concepts allow the board to gather a broad range of ideas from members who may not themselves be in a position to carry them forward. If you are submitting a Project Concept, you need only provide the items below that are underlined.


When project proposals are accepted, the submission period for project proposals and project concepts is open October 1 through December 31. Proposals may be considered by the Board of Directors at their discretion at any time.


Project Proposals are not being accepted this year. If you have a project that you would like funded that fits the below guidelines please contact Christa Hoover in the office or Board Chair, Jeff Bailey, for further discussion.
