The Last Green Valley, Inc. (TLGV) announces round two of a new small-grant program, the Heritage Transaction Fund, for non-profits, towns and cities in The Last Green Valley National Heritage Corridor.
The grants will be awarded to projects that will permanently protect significant historic properties or structures, agriculture or forested lands, important wildlife habitat or open spaces suitable for passive, nature-based recreation. The grant funds can be used for closing costs such as filing fees, title work, attorney fees, surveys, appraisals and other costs associated with projects that are “nearing the home stretch” but need additional funds to complete the deal.
Grants will range from $2,000 to $3,000 and must be spent within a year of approval. The deadline for grant applications is 4 p.m. March 29. All applications must be received or postmarked by the deadline. Applications should be sent to LyAnn Graff at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Funds will be dispersed on a reimbursement basis and must be matched at least 1:1 by cash or in-kind contributions. All grant applications will be reviewed by a committee and then approved by TLGV’s Executive Committee and/or Board of Directors.

“We’re trying to fill in the gaps for organizations with this grant program,” said Bruinooge, executive director of TLGV. “We think it will pair well with other funding opportunities and be helpful in addressing the costs federal, state and private grants won’t fund. This grant can provide that extra funding to get a project to the finish line.”
