Looking to preserve open space? York County now taking land grant applications
Municipalities and nonprofits may now apply for preservation funds through York County.
The county's Open Space and Land Preservation Grant Program is accepting grant applications through Sept. 30. This includes assistance for buying and preserving park land and open space.
It can also be used to repair existing trails and other open spaces; beautifying parks and managing water resources. In a change from past years, the program will also include Marcellus Shale Legacy funding, collected via unconventional gas well impact fees.
The application period opened July 1. A grants workshop will be held at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 10, via Zoom.
For more information or to access program guidelines, request a grant application or contact information, visit the York Open Space website at https://yorkopenspace.org/ or email email@example.com.
