The MWCC Watershed Fund provides direct support to our community-based Watershed Partners for capacity-building, professional development, and on-the-ground projects on private lands.

The two primary goals of the Watershed Fund are:

  1. Increase the capacity of local communities to advance community-based, locally led conservation using the Watershed Approach to conservation.
  2. Provide a model for streamlining, consolidating, and leveraging resources for locally led conservation statewide.

Thank you for your professional development funding request. The purpose of Watershed Fund Professional Development Support is to allow MWCC’s local watershed conservation partners to acquire skills, knowledge, and resources relevant to watershed health in their communities.

If your request is approved for funding, you will be required to fill out a separate form to receive reimbursement for your workshop, training, or conference. You must also provide receipts for event registration, lodging, car rentals, and other approved expenses. MWCC will send you this form upon approval of your funding request.
