Apply for a Fall 2022 Lowcountry SCNPS Grant!

August 1 @ 8:00 am - September 1 @ 5:00 pm

The Lowcountry Chapter of the South Carolina Native Plant Society is pleased to offer our Lowcountry Chapter Grant Program. Part of our mission is to promote native plants through planting, outreach, education, and the removal of exotic species. Our Lowcountry Chapter Grants Program gives us the ability to support local projects that align with this mission. There are two separate funding opportunities: one for School Projects and one for Community Projects. If your organization, community group, or school is interested in working with native plants in any capacity, we invite you to consider applying for one of our grants!

Fall applications will be accepted August 1 – September 1, 2022.  For application guidelines, please refer to this Lowcountry Chapter Grant Program document.  If you have questions, contact Matt Johnson (email address provided in linked document).
