towns, and schools. For the 2016-2017 Grant Cycle, Rockfall will entertain grant applications
for amounts ranging from $500 to $15,000. Multiple grants will be awarded, but only one grant
in excess of $10,000 can be awarded. All grants require at least a 50% match, which can
include in-kind services.
Grants will be awarded for projects that contribute to the general environmental education of the
public, promote environmental planning, contribute to the preservation of the Connecticut River
watershed, or fund an internship with a non-profit organization for an environmental project.

Lyme, Middlefield, Middletown, Old Lyme, Old Saybrook, Portland, Westbrook) in order to be
considered. This includes projects, programs or applicants based in the area towns. Proposals
that focus on the Connecticut River corridor or Long Island Sound will also be considered as
long as there is a demonstrated impact on the focus towns.
