The GYCC has consistently made about $250,000 available annually for projects submitted by any of the GYCC units. From 2012-2020, the GYCC has awarded over $2 million dollars to on-the-ground projects implemented across the GYA. Partnership funds and in-kind support has resulted in enhanced relationships between GYCC units. The selected projects represent work that advances the goals and priorities of the Greater Yellowstone Coordinating Committee (Ecosystem Health and Connecting People to the Land).
