The Harford Land Trust is the recipient of a $5,000 Accreditation Preparation grant from the Land Trust Alliance. The grant supports the Trust's goal to attain accreditation through the Land Trust Accreditation Commission, as set out in our 2017-2022 Strategic Plan. While we already follow the Land Trust Standards and Practices, accreditation is an important next step to formalize our commitment to operating with the highest standards. The grant allows the Trust to hire an experienced consultant to conduct a self-assessment of our practices against the Land Trust Standards and Practices over the next six months. This is the first step on a multi-year journey to achieve accreditation.
