This is a cost-share funding resource offered by the N.C. Wildlife Resources Commission’s (NCWRC) Green Growth Toolbox program. The goal of Partners for Green Growth is to provide support for local government planning projects that consider wildlife and natural resource conservation in land use and development planning, incentives and ordinances.
We encourage you to share your ideas with us ahead of submitting the required Project Idea Submission.
For projects that qualify, the Partners for Green Growth program will reimburse cost-share funds up to $20,000 and will provide 80 hours of technical assistance from North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission (NCWRC) wildlife biologists. Projects that request funds up to $10,000 are preferred so that we may fund more projects. The funding request can only be up to 75 percent of the entire project cost and 25 percent non-federal in-kind match (cash match is not necessary) is required to make up the remaining total project cost. In-kind match is explained in the detailed application description (link below).
For the 2023 Cycle: Project Idea Submissions are due May 15th. Invited final applications are due June 5th. All projects should begin by July 1 October 15 and be completed in 18 months.
Eligible applicants are local governments (North Carolina counties and incorporated municipalities) and Councils of Government. Partnerships between local governments and non-governmental, non-profit (NGO) conservation-related organizations are also eligible. Local government project applications are encouraged.
