Promoting public awareness and education of North Dakota's natural resources.


The Trust is seeking grant proposals to assist in the implementation of our mission, and the education elements identified in our 2023-2027 Strategic Plan, to support projects which produce educational aspects around the value of prairie landscapes, healthy soils, and grass-based regenerative practices.

Small grant proposals should address one or more aspects of our Statement of Need:

Public awareness and education of the value of grassland, wetland, and riparian landscapes, healthy soils, grass-based regenerative practices, and the importance of North Dakota’s natural resources.


Next Application Deadline: April 22nd, 2024

Final approvals of awarded grants are made at our May board meeting. Applicants will be notified shortly afterward.
