Elk County Conservation District Watershed Specialist Kim Bonfardine recently reported applying for an $88,000 grant through the Elk County Community Foundation to continue the Elk County Monitoring Project.
If accepted, the grant will extend the duration of the monitoring project for a couple years.
The Elk County Community Foundation provides scholarships and grants to other non-profit organizations in Elk County and the surrounding communities.
"I did apply for another grant to continue on the Colcom [Foundation] grant," Bonfardine said. "I didn't want to have to go back and ask them again for money so soon and they do not have another grant round open right now."
Bonfardine said there were unforeseen expenses to maintain the project.
