Is the tech support intended to create a plan from the start, or can it be used to revisit an existing strategic conservation plan through a climate change lens?
Hallie Schwab, Open Space Institute (she/her)
54:42
Thanks for the question, Shawndra. The technical support option can be used to update an existing plan through a climate lens.

Can a Technical Support grant be used to stewardship management planning for fee owned properties?
John Sumption
01:01:03
We are receiving our 7th round of funding from the Minnesota Outdoor Heritage fund to compensate landowners for perpetual conservation easements and do fee title acquisitions in the watersheds of deep, cold water (tullibee refuge) lakes. We have been approached by a regional foundation who is offering a pilot grant to explore what level of incentive payments for carbon sequestration would be necessary in addition to our regular payments to get landowners to participate. We would need to do up front logistical planning, develop conservation plans, and augment our existing GIS-based scoring system to accommodate the additional factors necessary to rank applications. Would these preliminary activities be eligible for the LTA grant? Engage consultants? Would other grants and our incentive payments be eligible match?

Is there information available about what will be required for the full application? I can't find that on the website.
Christa Collins
01:04:49
Are there any restrictions against using federal dollars for match, particularly if they've already been awarded?

01:06:06
does the nonprofit have to already have protected land or can the grant be used to make a case for protecting a certain parcel of land?
Shawndra Miller
01:06:27
thank you!
Kate O'Connor

Does the 50% match requirements apply to the tech support grants as well and are the Letter of Interest requirements the same?
Mitchell NewDelman
01:08:54
Is any participant an experienced "grant writer" ? If so, send me an email at mnewdelman@aol.com I can explain what and who I am looking for,,,, Cheers, Mitchell NewDelman

Does the Technical Support Grant give preference to accreditied land trusts?
Holly Odell
01:14:21
Our organization has focused on land acquisition (through purchase and easements) in the past and I am hoping to integrate connectivity as well as improved climate resilience in these actions. Can these grants by used to explore available lands or priority lands? Mapping across counties has proven difficult.
John Sumption

Is the OSI tech assistance available nationwide?

This may have been addressed already but do you have to apply separately for the technical grants?
