Sheboygan County Stewardship Fund Grant Applications Available

The Sheboygan County Planning & Conservation Department is pleased to announce that applications for the Sheboygan County Stewardship Fund Grant have been released.

Applications can be obtained at the Planning & Conservation Department office, located in Room 335 at 508 New York Avenue, Sheboygan, or by visiting and navigating to the Planning & Conservation Department page.

The 2015 application deadline is Monday, May 2, at 5:00 pm. Applications must be mailed or hand delivered; faxed or emailed applications will not be accepted. Approximately $110,000 is available for funding in 2016.

Recommendations for individual project funding are made by the Sheboygan Country Recreational Facilities Management Advisory Committee, with final funding allocation decided by the Sheboygan County Board of Supervisors’ Planning, Resources, Agriculture, and Extension Committee.

County Board Supervisor and Chairman of the Planning, Resources, Agriculture, and Extension Committee Keith Abler stated, “The County Stewardship program continues to be a popular and successful program fifteen years after over 70% of County voters approved it.

Over eighty projects have been approved and nearly every entity in the County has seen a project positively affect their community.”

Projects must fit into one of three categories: project development, land acquisition, or discretionary (which are considered for applicability on a case-by-case basis). Stewardship Grant funds cannot exceed 50% of the total project or acquisition cost.

Interested non-profits or municipalities are encouraged to contact the Department prior to applying.
