Community Conservation Partnerships Program

[30 Pa.B. 4267]

   The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) has announced an open application period for funding of planning, acquisition, development and technical assistance projects from the Community Conservation Partnerships Program.

   The Community Conservation Partnerships Program combines several funding sources that were previously administered by the Bureau of Recreation and Conservation as separate grant programs. These are the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund (Keystone), the Environmental Stewardship and Watershed Protection Act (Growing Greener), and the Pennsylvania Recreational Trails Program funded with Federal TEA-21 and State general fund moneys. The grant program components funded by these sources (Community Recreation ($12 million), Land Trusts ($4.5 million), Rails-to-Trails ($1.4 million), Rivers Conservation ($1.4 million), Recreational Trails ($2 million), and the Growing Greener Program ($8 million) have been combined into one application cycle and a single application format and process resulting in less paperwork.

   An announcement of this open application period, information on pre-application workshops and order form for the application manual has been sent to Commonwealth municipalities, municipal agencies, appropriate/authorized organizations and prequalified land trust organizations. A copy of the announcement and additional information may be obtained by contacting the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Bureau of Recreation and Conservation, 6th Floor Rachel Carson State Office Building, P. O.
