Low-income populations and communities of color have been disproportionately impacted by unhealthy environmental conditions and must often reside in areas comparatively lacking in natural amenities such as parks and tree cover. EMSWCD aims to respond more effectively to this historic and current reality. EMSWCD values the diversity of all residents as an integral part of the future success of programs and organization, and of conservation efforts in the region. Moreover, they are committed to establishing meaningful and productive relationships with communities to learn how best to ensure equitable conservation outcomes and benefits. Through the Grants Program, EMSWCD looks to support projects that further the opportunities for the region’s diverse populations to participate and help shape conservation efforts.
