While the grants only funded capital investments, a wide variety of projects qualified. Projects fall into four major categories:
- Land acquisition - Would privately owned property in your community make the next great neighborhood natural area?
- Urban transformations - Can a redevelopment project in your community go the extra step to integrate nature and habitat if more funding is available?
- Restoration - Is there a degraded stream, wetland or other habitat that needs to be restored in your neighborhood?
- Neighborhood livability - Can schools, parks or other public land in your neighborhood become a place for people to experience and enjoy nature?
