Environment and Species Conservation

The Trust may support a range of projects dealing with environmental hazards, wildlife conservation, protection of ecologically important areas and land use policy. The latter may include preservation of parks and open space in urban areas or analyses of environmental problems associated with sprawl.

Grants will focus exclusively on project support and will range in size from $20,000 to $100,000 per year. Multi-year commitments will be considered. Priority will be given to projects focused on the tri-state area and New England.

Blindness

Grants in the area of blindness and vision impairments include a broad range of services and research. Service-related grants may include expansion of existing services, implementation of new efforts and improvements of infrastructure to facilitate services. No grants will be considered to substitute lost government funding. Priority will be given to programs serving the Northeast United States. Research grants will primarily be considered through disease associations or other intermediaries with re-granting programs guided by scientific advisory committees. Preference will be given to efforts that support emerging research talent, innovative treatment or early detection studies.
