The Brandywine Conservancy is pleased to launch the Brandywine Creek Greenway’s (BCG) new Mini-Grant Program for 2021-2022.

The program is funded by a grant from the Pennsylvania DCNR Community Conservation Partnership Program Environmental Stewardship Fund, administered by the Bureau of Recreation and Conservation (BRC). With these funds, the Brandywine Conservancy will be able to grant awards of $2,000 to $10,000, up to a total of $28,000, to projects that will support and advance the goals and objectives of the BCG’s Strategic Action Plan (2014). The deadline for applications closes on October 15, 2021.  

The deadline has been extended to December 17, 2021.

Information about the grant program

The Mini-Grant Program funds small projects that improve parks, open space and community trails, and will advance priority conservation and recreation projects identified in the BCG's Strategic Action Plan, plus other publicly vetted municipal planning documents. Eligible applicants include Pennsylvania non-profit organizations with tax-exempt status 501(c)(3), municipalities, counties, and some educational institutions. Non-profit organizations must submit proof of non-profit status and be registered with the PA Department of State Bureau of Charitable Organizations. Mini-grants may not be used to fulfill match requirements for other DCNR funded grant projects. All projects, related costs, and funding must conform to all DCNR Grant Terms and Conditions of the PA DCNR Community Conservation Partnership Program.
