The Lehigh Valley Greenways Conservation Landscape Mini Grant Program is a reimbursement grant program funded by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) and administered by the Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L). The purpose is to inspire collaborative, strategic approaches to regional conservation and/or outdoor recreation opportunities and to implement ready-to-go, single-year projects that protect and promote the natural resources of the Lehigh Valley, advancing the four goals of Lehigh Valley Greenways Conservation Landscape.

Interested applicants should review the full Program Guidelines for eligibility and funding priorities before completing an application.
