HCTF encourages environmental stewardship proposals that focus on creating stewards. To assist Stewardship applicants in developing their funding proposals, HCTF has made a number of changes to our website and supporting guidelines. The new Stewardship webpage includes specific information and guidance for proponents interested in developing a stewardship application. Although the application form for Stewardship grants is still the same as that used for the Enhancement and Restoration grants, we encourage proponents to review the new webpage content and download our updated Stewardship Proposal Writing Guidelines to help craft your proposal.
Note that the 2020-21 application deadline to apply for Enhancement & Restoration and Stewardship grants is Friday, November 1, 2019. The HCTF Online application portal will open in mid-September. Updated worksheets are available now under the “Apply” tab of each of these grant types if you would like to start drafting your application.
