Partners in Conservation (PIC) Grants

The Partners in Conservation (PIC) program provides funding to support conservation projects and conservation education in the District. In order to be eligible for funding, projects or events must be located within the EMSWCD service area (all Multnomah County east of the Willamette River) or serve its residents. Projects must show a clear public benefit in one or more of the following: habitat restoration or watershed health, soil erosion prevention/control, soil health, water quality, water conservation, and/or environmental education.

The next round of funding for the 2021-22 PIC Grant cycle will begin in late 2021.
