Funding Opportunities
Are you a landowner or operator in the Lower Grass Valley Area? Funding may be available for you! 

The Sherman County SWCD and Watershed Council have chosen Lower Grass Valley Canyon as an area of focus this year. The conservation office will be dividing the county up into multiple sections based on the 6th field HUC’s to focus conservation on concentrated areas. Each section of the county will have an opportunity throughout the next few years to apply for these grants. The Watershed Council will be submitting 2 Large Grants to the Oregon Watershed Enhancement Board (OWEB) to fund projects in this area.
