Ridgway, PA – The North Central Pennsylvania Regional Planning and Development Commission (North Central) in cooperation with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), is encouraging municipal entities and authorities, council of governments, 501C3 tax exempt corporations, educational institutions, incorporated watershed associations, conservation districts, and county and local governments within the North Central Pennsylvania Region that are interested in expanding the North Central Pennsylvania Greenways network to apply for funding under the commission’s Greenways Implementation Block Grant Program. Eligible applicants must be located within the six county north central Pennsylvania region comprised of Cameron, Clearfield, Elk, Jefferson, McKean, and Potter counties.
The intent of the North Central Greenways Implementation Grant Program is to provide funding for smaller, conservation and water protection based projects that would implement the overall recommendations identified in the North Central Pennsylvania Greenways Plan. Grant requests should not exceed $40,000, and can account for no more than 85% of the total project cost. Match may be provided by in-kind services and/or cash. Special consideration will be given to projects that involve opportunities for coordination between local and state agencies.
Deadline for applications is Friday, May 3rd, 2013 by 4:00 PM.
