Funding Available for Recreation and Conservation Projects
Townships may apply for financial assistance with recreation and conservation projects under the Community Conservation Partnership Program, or C2P2. The deadline for applications is April 16.
Funded through the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), these grants are awarded to such projects as the rehabilitation and development of parks and recreation facilities; land acquisition for parks and conservation; and technical assistance for feasibility and trail studies and site development planning.
Successful applicants must adhere to DCNR’s guiding action plan and three basic tenets:
• promoting statewide conservation;
• building and maintaining sustainable communities; and
• creating outdoor connections for citizens and visitors.
