About this grant
Recent public scrutiny has highlighted the need for a uniform level of competency throughout the land trust sector. The Land Trust Alliance has responded in many ways, including the launch of a national land trust accreditation program.This grant will enable the alliance to assist land trusts across the country prepare for accreditation through trainings and other means, as well as establish an independent commission that will oversee the accreditation review process itself. As the umbrella organization representing more than 1,500 land trusts across the nation, the alliance is well-positioned to undertake such an important task.
