The Conservancy provides grants for a wide variety of projects throughout the Lake Tahoe Basin (Basin), including those identified in the Environmental Improvement Program (EIP). Such grants are a primary mechanism by which the Conservancy achieves its mission and Strategic Plan. The Conservancy developed its Grant Guidelines (Guidelines) to provide foundational information and accountability to partners and the citizens of California. The Guidelines identify funding priorities and the considerations used to evaluate proposals, as well as basic information regarding all grants and submittals. The Guidelines apply generally to all Conservancy grants, including those funded with Proposition 68 and other funding sources.
