Feedback Sought on Outdoor Recreation Priorities

April 1st, 2019

Does your community need help upgrading and managing your local parks and recreational facilities? 

The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) is partnering with key state associations in seeking  input to determine how to best allocate grant funds and provide assistance. 
The information you provide in this survey will help to determine state funding priorities and programs. This survey should take about 10-15 minutes. You should not have to look up any information to complete the survey. This survey is intended for elected/appointed officials and park/recreation directors.
