Our Contributors & Funders


NRCA is supported by a combination of funds from the University of Connecticut, federal agencies, and several charitable foundations. Our foundational partnership at UConn includes the Department of Natural Resources and the Environment, the Center for Land Use Education and Research, and the Center for Environmental Sciences and Engineering. NRCA also has a strong partnership with the Neag School of Education.  External partners include several statewide nonprofits and all of our participating communities across Connecticut (see map on home page).

Specific information about our funders is located on the Partners and Funding page of each of the three programs (direct links to those pages are below):
