In Wisconsin, the River Protection Grant Program provides municipalities and qualified organizations with financial assistance for projects that protect water quality, habitat and natural beauty along rivers, and also for projects that protect rivers from further development.
River Planning Grants can be used for river studies, management planning, education and organizational development. River Management Grants can be used for habitat improvement projects, land or easement acquisition, or development of protective ordinances.
Successful programs also require financial resources. Cason & Associates’ grant writing specialists work with municipalities and non-profit organizations, such as Lake Associations and Lake Districts, to procure cost-share funding from several government programs. Our grant writing experience includes Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) grants (Education and Prevention, Established Infestation, and Rapid Response), Lake Management Planning Grants and Lake Protection Grants. Our staff has successfully written over two million dollars in grants for our clients. Please feel free to call us to discuss how these grant programs may benefit your lake organization’s project.
