PACD Receives $250,000 Grant for Stream Buffer Projects


The Wolf Administration announced a $1.1 million grant investment to eight recipients throughout Pennsylvania for planting trees and income-producing species along streams to help keep nutrients and sediments from the land from impacting water quality.

The grants are administered through the PA Department of Natural Resources with funding provided by PENNVEST.

Through the program, PACD will receive $250,000 to support conservation districts in constructing approximately 45 acres of multi-functional riparian forest buffers along waterways throughout Pennsylvania. This sub-grant program will provide an opportunity for stakeholders to complete demonstration projects statewide, in partnership with local conservation districts.

More information on the sub-grant program will be provided to conservation districts.
