This workshop is designed to help applicants develop project ideas in preparation of submitting a grant application to the Community Conservation Grant Program, which opens Monday, January 23, and closes Wednesday, April 12, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. DCNR Bureau of Recreation and Conservation staff will be on hand to deliver a power point presentation on the application process, review current program priorities, and discuss eligible project categories. Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to attend at least one of the six statewide in-person grant workshops held this fall.
The Community Conservation Partnerships Program focuses on planning, acquisition, and development activities associated with conservation areas, community parks, trails, river conservation and recreation, riparian buffer areas, etc.
The second half of the workshop offers four simultaneously held breakout sessions designed specifically for the type of project you are interested in applying for. The choices of breakout sessions are as follows: (1) community recreation planning projects; (2) community recreation development projects; (3) trail projects (trail planning, trail acquisition and trail development); and (4) land acquisition (community recreation and land conservation). Therefore, if your organization is considering submitting grants for more than one type of project, consider sending more than one person to this workshop. Workshop attendees will have opportunities to ask questions and network with BRC staff and their municipal, non-profit, and community volunteer colleagues.
