We just received this information and learned there is no deadline to apply for funding!
Landowners in Hamilton and Halton Conservation Authorities’ watersheds are eligible to receive grants toward the cost of eligible and approved water quality and habitat improvement projects that reflect beneficial management practices.
Funds are being delivered through the Hamilton-Halton Watershed Stewardship Program, assisting and encouraging landowners to protect and enhance the natural features on their property.
Healthy watersheds support healthy families and communities. Good water quality and healthy natural areas help us all. The benefits of improved water quality and habitat include a safe secure water supply, healthy stream systems, increased recreational opportunities, sustainable agricultural operations and a vibrant economy.
You can call the Hamilton-Halton Watershed Stewardship Program at 905-336-1158, extension 263 or 905-525-2181, extension 181 for a free on-site consultation to discuss your project and determine if it could be eligible for funding.
Late note: When I originally posted this I forgot that not all of Halton Region is covered by Conservation Halton. The northeast part of Halton Hills is actually in the Credit Valley watershed, so it’s under the authority of Credit Valley Conservation. I don’t have any word yet about stewardship funding from them.
