2018 Centennial and Beyond Grantees

In commemoration of the National Park Service (NPS) 100th year in 2016, NEEF launched its Centennial and Beyond Fund. These grants were targeted to friends/partner groups of NPS units. The funds were used for professional development activities, including attending training sessions that were deemed beneficial by NPS, such as Public Lands Alliance (PLA) Convention, the Friends Alliance 2018 Fall Meeting, and/or the 2019 Spring Meeting.

With additional funding from The Kendeda Fund, NEEF was able to continue awarding grant funds into 2018.
