About this grant

Just over 90 local land trusts are active in the four southeastern ecoregions of interest to Mott’s freshwater ecosystems grantmaking. With previous support, the Land Trust Alliance, a national provider of technical assistance to land trusts, has worked in the region to build land trust effectiveness, encourage strategic planning and partnerships, accelerate the pace of private land conservation, and help ensure the permanence of land conservation achievements. Renewal support will enable the alliance to continue this work with an emphasis on helping land trusts prepare for a new voluntary land trust accreditation process.
