Applications for Jefferson County Open Space Projects Invited

Port Townsend – The Jefferson County Board of County Commissioners invites applications for projects to enhance the county's open spaces. The Conservation Futures Program and Fund help protect important wildlife habitat, agricultural and timber lands, visual buffers, scenic areas, and open space lands linked to parks, cultural and historic sites - all for the health, benefit and welfare of citizens. Projects must provide permanent protection of open space lands through the acquisition of real property or development rights or involve operations and maintenance costs for properties acquired with the Conservation Futures Fund. Projects will be scored, ranked, and considered for recommendation to the County Commissioners by the Conservation Futures Citizen Oversight Committee.
In the 2022 funding cycle, approximately $220,000 is available to projects. Of this amount, up to approximately $39,727 may be used to reimburse operations and maintenance expenses. A matching amount of at least 50% of the total project cost is required. To request a program manual and application, and for more information, contact or call (360) 379-4498. The application deadline is Friday, March 25, 2022 at 4:30 PM to the Jefferson County Environmental Health Dept., 615 Sheridan St., Port Townsend, WA 98368 or by email to
Workshops to explain the details of the Conservation Futures Program to agencies, groups and interested citizens are available by request throughout the year.
