2021 SuAsCo CISMA Small Grant Request for Proposals

The Steering Committee of the SuAsCo CISMA has received $6,000 from the Sudbury-Assabet-Concord Wild & Scenic River Stewardship Council (RSC) to fund one or more invasive species control projects. We are seeking proposals from CISMA Partner organizations for projects that would directly benefit the Sudbury, Assabet, and/or Concord rivers by either eradicating/managing applicable priority species or by supporting educational outreach efforts. For more information see the complete RFP. 

Email proposals to Kristin O’Brien (kobrien@svtweb.org) by 5:00 pm, December 18, 2020.
