Applications Now Accepted For Park/Recreational Grants

Applications are now being accepted for a state grant program that promotes the rehabilitation and development of parks and recreation facilities, according to Senator Michele Brooks.

The state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources is now accepting applications for grants under the 2015 Community Conservation Partnerships Program (C2P2), according to Senator Brooks.

The application period for the upcoming round of C2P2 grants is open until April 16.  More information and grant applications are available at www.grants.dcnr.state.pa.us. Pre-application workshops and webinars will be held across the state beginning in late January.

Over the past 20 years the C2P2 program has funded more than 4,000 projects that have helped plan, acquire, and develop parks, recreation facilities, trails, and conserved critical conservation areas and watersheds; supported education and training on conservation and recreation topics; and built conservation, heritage, and recreation partnerships.
