Regional Conservation Partnership Program
Call for Applications from Landowners: Regional Conservation Partnership Program (RCPP)
Through a partner effort, the Regional Conservation Partners Program grant "Building Resiliency in the San Juan - Rio Chama Region" was recently approved for $3.25 million in funding. This grant is a collaborative project to implement on-the-ground conservation practices on forest, range, and irrigated lands across a large region of northern New Mexico and southern Colorado, including the Alliance region. Funding is also available for conservation easements on private lands. The program and application process will be managed by the East Rio Arriba Soil and Water Conservation District.
Applications are accepted on a rolling basis with the first round of applications to be reviewed on August 17, 2018.
Thank you to everyone who attended the recent Open House Events. At this time, we do not have the next Open House scheduled, but we will be posting the details here, when it is created.
