RISCC Receives Grant
November 14, 2016


The Rhode Island State Conservation Committee (RISCC) has received a $40,000.00 grant from the Rhode Island Foundation that will enable RISCC and Rhode Island’s three Conservation Districts (Eastern, Northern and Southern) to continue fulfilling and sustaining their mission of conserving the land and natural resources of Rhode Island for the benefit of its people.

The work will include increasing development of programs with existing partners, as well as entering into partnerships with additional municipalities, educational institutions and federal and state agencies. The programs will be geared toward preserving the integrity and diversity of nature, while making certain any use of natural resources is equitable and ecologically sustainable.  This will create a process by which both disciplines can  work together so that human systems are less susceptible to climate-related hazards.

“Every grant we make underscores our commitment to moving Rhode Island forward. We work closely with our donors and grantees to ensure there are the resources and the resourcefulness to achieve great impact,” said Neil Steinberg, the Foundation’s president and CEO. The Rhode Island Foundation is the largest and the most comprehensive funder of nonprofit organizations in Rhode Island.  In 2015, the Foundation awarded $41.5 million in grants to organizations addressing the state’s most pressing issues and needs of diverse communities. Through leadership, fundraising and grantmaking activities, often in partnership with individuals and organizations, the Foundation is helping Rhode Island reach its true potential.
