DCNR Hosting Grant Workshops for Recreation and Conservation Projects
 
In partnership with the Pennsylvania Recreation and Park Society, the state Department of Conservation and Resources (DCNR) will host free grant workshops at six locations across the state in November.

DCNR’s Bureau of Recreation and Conservation (BRC) grant program for statewide, regional, and local recreation and conservation projects will open in early January 2018 and close in mid-April 2018. Grants are funded through a variety of sources including the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund; Environmental Stewardship Fund; Pennsylvania Recreational Trails Program; and the Land and Water Conservation Fund.

Attendees will be provided in-depth information on projects eligible for DCNR grant funds; learn how to develop a competitive “ready-to-go” application; learn about matching fund requirements and other sources of funding for the match; receive guidance and updates on the eGrants application process, and the documents required for each project type; learn what’s new in the DCNR Bureau of Recreation and Conservation; and have an opportunity to interact with DCNR Regional Advisors and grant project managers.

Regional workshops are held from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Registration begins at 9 a.m. Sessions dates and locations are: 
  • Nov. 1 – Giant Food Store Community Room: Camp Hill
  • Nov. 8 - Luzerne County Community College: Nanticoke
