Special Creative Sentencing Funding Announced
Posted November 2, 2016 by LSC
When the primary funding for the Watershed Stewardship Grant program was cancelled earlier this year, Land Stewardship Centre (LSC) committed to exploring ways to access new sources of funding that could be used to support the valuable work of Watershed Stewardship Groups.
As a part of this commitment we are pleased to announce we have secured $35,000 in creative sentencing funds from the provincial government, and we are now making these funds available to eligible applicants through our Watershed Stewardship Grant (WSG) program. Creative sentencing funds come from penalties administered by the Alberta court as a result of infractions under the Water Act.
To be eligible for this funding, applicants’ projects must focus on activities that protect, improve or restore aquatic and riparian habitat in the province. Eligible projects may include riparian naturalization, fish habitat enhancement and wetland restoration.
Stewardship groups can apply for up to $35,000, the total amount available under this special grant round. Applications for this creative sentencing grant will be accepted until 4:30 PM MST on December 16, 2016.
Some of the requirements have changed so download the 2016 Creative Sentencing Grant Application Form to learn more and apply today.
