Climate-Smart Grant

Northwest Connecticut Land Conservancy (NCLC) is pleased to announce the Building Resiliency on Northwest Connecticut Farmland grant program (known as the Building Resiliency program), made possible through a generous grant from the Connecticut Department of Agriculture’s Climate-Smart Agriculture and Forestry (CSAF) program.

NCLC’s Building Resiliency program funds two types of projects: (1) climate-smart agricultural assessments and (2) the implementation of climate-smart agricultural practices from the following climate mitigation categories: soil health, nitrogen management, grazing and pasture, agroforestry, and energy use.
