Peconic Estuary Partnership 2023 Mini-Grant Funding Opportunity for projects in the Peconic Estuary and Watershed.

The Peconic Estuary Partnership (PEP) is pleased to announce the 2023 Mini-Grant
Funding winner for projects in the Peconic Estuary and Watershed. PEP invited
organizations to apply for a 2023 PEP Mini Grant to implement a project that assists in accomplishing PEP’s 2020 Comprehensive Conservation Management Plan (CCMP) goal of Prioritizing Resilient Communities Prepared for Climate Change within the Peconic watershed.
This goal seeks to help local communities take meaningful, well-informed action to prepare for, and adapt to climate change impacts in the Peconic Estuary. For more
specific information on PEP goals and watershed delineation, please see the PEP’s 2020 CCMP; Actions 10-15. Projects that include PEP’s ongoing focus on inclusion, diversity, equity, and access (IDEA) are encouraged.
