District funds are grant funds that can be awarded for conservation projects. Grants are awarded based on the benefit to resources and the citizens of Jackson County.
District funds may be used for projects addressing urban or rural natural resource issues or to assist in the development or continuation of community education projects. Check out the list below to see the types of natural resource issues we support work on.
The district has a variety of grant programs to address different project types and sizes. Larger grant projects require a project proposal and matching grant funds; proposals are submitted after a project plan has been outlined with the help of our resource staff. Proposals are submitted to a committee of the Board of Jackson Soil and Water Conservation District for potential approval. The district also offers several rebate programs that offer quicker processes for smaller projects (see below for types of programs and individual program requirements).
