2024 Conservation Grants Program

The 2024 Conservation Grants Program appliction period is now open and accepting applications through March 8th, 2024.



The Chippewa Luce Mackinac Conservation District (CLMCD) is very excited to announce the 2023 Conservation Grants Program. Grants are available to the public for conservation related projects to be implemented in Chippewa, Luce, or Mackinac County. CLMCD is anticipating awarding up to $12,000 to 6 - 10 projects across Chippewa Luce and Mackinac Counties. Grants will range between $1,000 - $2,000 each. CLMCD seeks proposals for a variety of projects that have a direct impact to the improvement of our natural resources through hands on educational programs or projects that directly impact the environment.


Prior to completing your application form, please review the criteria for the grant program as well as the summary of the follow-up procedures and Final Project Report required of all recipients of a Conservation Grant. Please review this information carefully as it may prove valuable when designing your project and submitting your application. In particular, please note the deadlines and signatures required for the application. Improperly complete or incomplete applications will not be considered for funding. Each applicant may request up to $2,000 in support, but CLMCD reserves the right to reduce the amount requested if it deems the project cost isn’t justified.


The application deadline is March 8th, 2024 at 4:30 pm. Late applications will not be accepted. Only electronic submissions through e-mail will be accepted. All applicants will be notified if they are or are not recipients of an award no later than April 19th, 2024. Awardees will receive their funds at the start of the project period and must have all funds spent by November 30, 2024. If you have any further questions pertaining to the grant application process, please email CLMCD Executive Director, Mike McCarthy at


Good luck and thank you for your interest in the Conservation Grant Program!
