United States: Cumberland Forest Community Fund Grant Program
The Clinch-Powell is currently accepting proposals for the Cumberland Forest Community Fund Grant Program to enable the design, implementation, and management of a competitive local grant program to support nature-based economic and community development in five counties in Tennessee (Campbell, Claiborne, Grainger, Hancock, and Union).
The program will solicit proposals, review applications, and select and provide funding to projects and initiatives that produce “triple bottom line outcomes.” Triple bottom line outcomes include tangible contributions to:
local economic development (e.g., jobs, visitor spending, lodging taxes, etc.),
increased community capacity (e.g., green infrastructure investments, outdoor recreation/tourism capacity building, strategic planning, creation of local policies/conditions that enable nature-based economic development, etc.), and
enhanced environmental quality (e.g., benefits to land, water, and air quality).
Fellows will receive Project and Connect Fund to address Water-related Issues
