Sierra Nevada Conservancy pre-proposals due July 16

From the Sierra Nevada Conservancy

The Sierra Nevada Conservancy (SNC) announced the launch of its Proposition 84 Grant Program for the Fiscal Year 2012-13 on Monday, June 18, 2012.  This is a reminder that the deadline for pre-application submission is Monday, July 16, 2012. Pre-applications may be submitted electronically to or hand delivered to an SNC office by 5:00 p.m. on this date.  Pre-applications may also be mailed with a postmark no later than Monday, July 16, 2012.

This program will offer grants for competitive projects that meet criteria in three areas: Proposition 84 requirements, SNC mission and programmatic goals, and the Preservation of Ranch and Agricultural Lands as referenced in the SNC Strategic Plan.  Please read the Grant Guidelines thoroughly to determine if your project idea is appropriate for this grant cycle.  Potential applicants are encouraged to consult with SNC Area Representatives with any questions.

Please note that submitting a pre-application is a requirement.  A pre-application that clearly and completely demonstrates the applicant and project’s eligibility will result in an invitation to submit a full application; full applications will not be accepted without an invitation.  If invited, the deadline for submission of invited full applications is October 22, 2012.  For more detailed information, please go to the SNC grants page at
