Grants to Virginia nonprofit organizations and government agencies for environmental projects in eligible locations. Funding is intended to support initiatives in the areas of environmental literacy and awareness, land conservation support, and water quality improvement, restoration, and protection. Funding will be provided for conservation initiatives located within the counties of Craig, Franklin, Giles, Montgomery, Pittsylvania and Roanoke, and in the cities of Salem and Roanoke, but will also be considered for portions of initiatives that extend beyond these locations.

VEE encourages proposals that promise measurable results to improve the environment consistent with the mission and priorities of VEE and the Community Conservation Program.  Applicants should describe specifically how they will measure success of a proposal.

GrantWatch ID#: 200550

Estimated Size of Grant:

VEE will consider proposals of no less than $50,000.

Term of Contract:

Multi-year projects of up to three years are eligible.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

VEE makes grants to nonprofit, tax-exempt charitable organizations and institutions and governmental agencies.

Grant funds are not provided for general support, overhead, indirect costs, capital projects, land purchases, building construction or renovation, endowments, lawsuits, or to individuals.

Any proposal requiring environmental permits must be in compliance with all such rules and regulations to receive funding from this program.

Pre-Application Information:

The submission deadline for the Community Conservation Program is 5 p.m. ET on January 15. VEE must receive an electronic copy of the application materials in Word document format, signed by the applicant’s chief executive officer or board chair, by the submission deadline.

The VEE Board will likely make its decisions about applications in April.

The application process for the Community Conservation Program is open to any qualified organization. However, VEE strongly suggests that any organization interested in submitting a proposal first provide VEE with a one to two page letter briefly explaining the proposal so as to allow VEE staff the opportunity to provide an informal review and response before submission.

VEE does not require Community Conservation Program proposals to have matching funds in amounts equal to or in excess of the grant request. However, VEE will seek to leverage its financial resources with matching public or private funding and will preferentially consider proposals that leverage its Community Conservation Program funds. VEE may offer challenge grants to provide leverage in fundraising.

VEE does not reimburse costs incurred by an applicant before the authorization date of any awarded grant.

VEE will provide payments in installments, generally on a reimbursement basis.

Please note that proposals VEE received last year which did not receive VEE funding are ineligible for resubmission absent prior express authorization from VEE.
