Recreation and Conservation Grant Application Period is Open, Says Everett
1/25/2013
HARRISBURG -- Rep. Garth Everett (R-Lycoming) said today the application period for Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) recreation and conservation grants is open for communities and organizations until April 10.

“These grants have gone a long way in many areas to help promote improvements in recreational areas and in developing local programs,” said Everett.

Last year, $26.5 million was awarded to communities through the DCNR grant program. The funds come from the Environmental Stewardship Fund, the Keystone Park, Recreation and Conservation Fund, the Snowmobile/ATV Fund and other federal sources. This program funds projects that plan for, acquire, develop and/or rehabilitate public park, recreation, open space, greenway, trail and conservation areas and facilities.

Everett said entities that are eligible to apply include municipalities, municipal agencies, pre-qualified land trusts, 501c (3) nonprofits and other appropriate, authorized agencies.

The awarding of grants will be announced later this year.

For more information on the program and to apply, visit the DCNR website at http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/brc/grants/index.aspx.
