South Platte Protection Plan Grants Offered for 2013
The South Platte Enhancement Board (SPEB) is accepting grant applications for projects and initiatives that protect or enhance natural resource and cultural/historical values along sections of the South Platte River and its North Fork. Grants can range from $500-$20,000 per project.
Successful projects will benefit wildlife, water quality, geology, fisheries, recreation, scenic vistas, or historical/cultural sites within the river corridor from Strontia Springs Reservoir to Elevenmile Reservoir on the mainstem, and from Strontia Springs to Insmont on the North Fork. SPEB is particularly interested in projects that strategically assess recreation needs in this area.
SPEB grant applications are evaluated according to 1) the degree to which the project provides for enhancement, restoration, or conservation of identified natural resource or historical/cultural values, 2) the effectiveness of project planning and design, 3) potential partnerships and funds-matching, 4) ongoing maintenance requirements, and 5) how well the project supports or builds on existing resources.
