Partners in Conservation (PIC) Grant Application Materials
Sample PIC grant applications:

We know it is sometimes helpful to see samples of successful applications. Here are two applications from the 2020 PIC cycle for projects that ranked high and were funded by EMSWCD. Please note that some of the application questions have been modified for 2022 PIC.

  • Ecotrust sample application Food Systems Leadership Fellowships
    As a two-year project, the Food Systems Leadership Fellowship program trains 10-15 local food systems leaders of color. This training program aims to build these leaders’ capacity to develop and implement regenerative agriculture projects that promote growing practices rooted in conservation and restoration. A collaborative initiative, the project addresses a lack of culturally-specific training opportunities needed to lead regenerative agriculture projects in East Multnomah County.
  • Friends of Trees sample applicationAdult Urban Forestry and Restoration Training and Internship Program
    Friends of Trees organized and hosted a paid ten week adult training program focusing on urban forestry and restoration related topics, as a one-year continuation of a past project. Over 15 participants attended weekly trainings and at completion were connected with a 100-hour paid internship with a local leader doing urban forestry or restoration related-work in the Portland Metro area.
