I am pleased to announce the Letters of Intent (LOIs) that have been selected to move forward and submit full proposals to ANR's Competitive Grants Program.

In 2014, ANR conducted a formative assessment of the grants program to evaluate whether the intended goals of the program were being met or if there were plans in place to achieve appropriate outcomes. As a result, applicants this year were required to address strategic initiative priority issue areas to better facilitate the identification and measurement of efforts and impacts.
