We administer the Sierra Nevada Watershed Improvement Program’s muliple grant programs as well as provide information on available funding opportunities in the Sierra Nevada Region.
SNC Grant Program
Under the Sierra Nevada Watershed Improvement Program, we issue grants to public agencies, nonprofits, and eligible tribes for projects that support forest health, resilient Sierra Nevada communities, and vibrant recreation and tourism.
Get notified about SNC grant opportunities.
“The projects that we fund throughout the Sierra Nevada are developed by our on the ground partners with the assistance of local Sierra Nevada Conservancy staff. Our holistic approach means that a lot of our grants address urgent local needs, like reducing the risk of damaging wildfire, while advancing state priorities to reduce greenhouse gas emission, improve habitat, and protect water supply infrastructure.”
