The Delaware & Lehigh National Heritage Corridor (D&L) is excited to announce the 2020 Lehigh Valley Greenways (LVG) Mini Grant recipients. This year, LVG proudly awards 11 mini grants. LVG Mini Grant Awards support land conservation, ecological restoration, outdoor recreation and environmental education in Lehigh and Northampton counties.
The Lehigh Valley Greenways Mini Grant Program, funded by PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and administered by D&L, will award $60,000 of grants to 11 municipalities and non-profits within Northampton or Lehigh County. Each grant is matched at a 1:1 ratio to leverage the funds.
Today, LVG continues to strive as a partnership to connect and conserve ribbons of green that enhance quality of life for those who live, work, and recreate in the Lehigh Valley. Since the beginning of the mini grant program in 2006, over $1,700,000 has been distributed to projects across the Lehigh Valley.
Previously, grants have supported a variety of projects from stream and floodplain restoration on various local waterways to supporting the Lehigh Gap Nature Center’s Color of Nature Program for environmental education.
Check out the success stories of these completed projects and the interactive map of where these projects occurred on the Lehigh Valley Greenways Website.
