Headwaters Conservation Partnership Distributes Nearly $15K

Headwaters Conservation Partnership Distributes Nearly $15K

DUBOIS – The Headwaters Conservation Partnership has announced the distribution of a total of $14,875 in funding for six conservation projects located in five counties in the Headwaters region.

“This program was initiated in the spring of 2012, and we are so pleased to provide this funding to local high-value conservation projects. Thanks to our initial corporate partners, we anticipate a great response in 2013. It’s fun to be a part of, and it works,” said Dale Fox, executive director of the Headwaters Resource Conservation and Development Council (RC&D).

The first round of funding was made possible by contributions from Northwest Savings Bank, CNB Bank, EQT, Dominion, Domtar, Atlas and Pennsylvania General Energy.

The Headwaters Conservation Partnership accepts corporate, small business and individual partners in the Headwaters eight-county region, which consists of Cameron, Clearfield, Centre, Clinton, Elk, Jefferson, Potter and McKean counties. Partners designate which county or counties they wish to put their funding to work for conservation and community development projects. The RC&D has three board members from each county representing the County Commissioners, Planning Commissions and Conservation Districts. Those members provide recommendations on how to allocate the funds available to projects in their county. Companies also have the opportunity to choose specific projects to provide funding for.

The following projects were approved for funding:

Driftwood Branch Nature Trail, Cameron County, $1,237.50
Haz-mat Absorbent Materials, Jefferson County, $562.50
Monthly Calibration of Water Monitoring Equipment, Elk County, $1,600
American Chestnut Tree Reforestation at Bennett’s Branch, Elk County, $4,500
Education Materials and Envirothon Support, McKean County, $1912.50
Karthaus Park Restroom Facility, Clearfield County, $562.50

The total value of all supported projects in this first round of funding is $222,589.50. The Headwaters Conservation partnership is hoping to have enough partnership funding to conduct four grant rounds per year in the future.
