Partners for Green Growth

Partners for Green Growth is a pilot project of the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission (NCWRC) to form a cooperative agreement with a local government to work on land use planning projects that address conservation of priority wildlife habitats. The Partners for Green Growth pilot project will reimburse cost-share funds of $10,000 or $20,000 and will provide 40 hours of technical assistance from the NCWRC for local government planning projects that qualify. Planning projects should support the principles of wildlife conservation-based planning detailed in the Green Growth Toolbox.

Please submit pre-applications and questions about this cooperative agreement to Kacy Cook, Land Conservation Biologist, N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission,, 910-638-4887.
