The Rockfall Foundation invites grant proposals from nonprofit organizations, towns, and schools to support environmental education, conservation and planning projects in Middlesex County. The deadline for receipt of completed applications is November 18, 2011 and awards will be announced in mid-February, 2012.

Rockfall grants often serve as catalysts for imaginative ways to preserve our natural environment while enhancing the quality of life for all county residents.Grant selections also often reflect Rockfall’s focus on grassroots programs, particularly those that encourage residents to spend more time outside and better understand the county’s natural resources and unique character.”

Of special interest are: projects for youth that integrate activities with local, standards-based curricula; projects that encourage community growth that is in harmony with the environment; and internship projects with measurable outcomes for college students. Priority will be given to projects that serve as models throughout Middlesex County.

All those who are interested in submitting a proposal are invited to an informal grants informational workshop on Tuesday, October 11th from 5 – 6 p.m. at the deKoven House Community Center.
