DCNR Park Grants

Grant assistance from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) helps Pennsylvania communities and organizations plan, acquire, and develop recreation, park, and trail facilities and conserve open space. The Bureau of Recreation and Conservation administers the Community Conservation Partnerships Program which combines several state and federal funding sources into one grant program.

In 2012, the DCNR grant program will focus on making grant awards that enhance the Commonwealth’s recreation and conservation infrastructure. Specific priorities for grant proposals include: the rehabilitation of existing park and recreation facilities, particularly through the incorporation of green principles; trail projects that close gaps in major statewide greenways and regionally significant trails; implementation of Rivers Conservation Plans including enhancing water trails and improving public river access; planning to help park and recreation facilities become greener; land conservation for critical habitat, key connectors, expansion of existing park and recreation areas and the establishment of new community parks; and projects identified by regional partnerships including Conservation Landscape Initiatives, Heritage Areas, and statewide significant greenways.
