Jenae McCarthy
40:32
could you go back to tips slide please?
Julia Babbitt
40:45
Do you anticipate this being an annual grant?
Creal Zearing
41:17
How many applicatiosn do you typically get?
Betsy Taylor
41:43
would you support folks who are starting a land trust but are not yet organized that way? and would you fund folks who are looking for models for land reform leading to land trust in areas with high inequality in land ownership?...
Karl Russek
42:43
There was mention of communication as part of the planning grant, but it seemed to refer to internal comms- would a stakeholder outreach tool such as a GIS storymap (provided it is consistent with the larger grant goals) fit within this criteria?
Andrea Denham
43:20
To clarify: is the technical support through OSI only available to the eastern states geographical region?
Creal Zearing
44:25
+1 Karl.
Hallie Schwab, OSI (she/her)
44:40
Andrea: The technical support is only available to land trusts that meet Land Trust Alliance's eligibility criteria, but it is not limited to Eastern States
Hallie Schwab, OSI (she/her)
45:59
Karl: a GIS storymap or other external outreach/communications projects that meet the other criteria for the program are eligible.
Kelly Watkinson, Land Trust Alliance
47:25
Betsy - you would need to be an established land trust to be eligible for LTA funding but depending on your legal structure you may be eligible for OSI. If you are not in OSI's region of focus you may need to partner with an established land trust to apply.
Shane Morgan
48:31
If we are awarded an OSI grant - how soon do we have to produce deliverables? Is there a time limit? 12 months, 18 months, 24 months? Thanks.
Hallie Schwab, OSI (she/her)
50:04
Shane: Typically projects should be completed within 12 months from the start of the grant term, and we are asking that projects begin in 2022. If that timing will pose a challenge, we often offer some flexibility.
Kylie Hall
53:16
Would passive climate strategies be less competitive? Such as carbon sequestration or runoff diversion based on trees and other land cover on conservation lands, as opposed to something like wetland restoration.
Paul Racette, PA Env. Council
01:02:04
Our interest would be focused on helping municipalities ID nature-based project opportunities that also align with their stormwater management programs (e.g., flood plan restoration or naturalized basins that capture/slow runoff). Would such a project ID plan that was later directed at emerging federal infrastructure funds be a good candidate for OSI grant? We would link more specific munic plan(s) with an academic group doing broader modeling in the watershed to investigate flood mitigation projects.
Kylie Hall

Thank you!
Jess Burton, she/her, Southern Maine Conservation Collaborative
01:09:45
Just clarifying- what types of grants are open to tribes?
Jacob McCarty
01:10:06
Could you give a general example of how engagement with indigenous persons would be a relevant submission?
Creal Zearing
01:10:33
I apologize if I missed this, what kind of follow-up reporting is required if we are awarded a grant?
Owen Nichols
01:12:57
will you include the 'office hours' date/times in the follow-up e-mail? thank you, this was super helpful and informative!
