GLAHNF provides financial resources, shares information, and fosters communication between citizens and organizations working to protect aquatic habitats. The GLAHNF grants program is designed to increase the ability of grassroots groups and individuals to succeed in advocacy projects to protect rivers, lakes, and wetlands in their areas.

GLAHNF has five grants programs designed to further this goal. Each addresses a different need of grassroots activists.

  • Special Opportunity Grants Program-offers emergency funding for grassroots projects
