Friends of NACD are individuals who support the nation’s nearly 3,000 conservation districts through cash donations to NACD. Individuals contribute at four donation levels (between $35 to $1500), with each level entitling members to specific benefits.

Included as a benefit to Friends of NACD is the opportunity to support individual conservation districts through the Friends of NACD Grant Program. Since Fiscal Year 2020, Friends of NACD have awarded $20,000 in grant funding to eight districts across the country. Please see the list below for the 2021 and 2020 Friends of NACD District Grants Recipients.

The Fiscal Year 2022 Grants Program application is now open. The deadline for submissions is November 30, 2021 by 11:59 P.M. local time.
