DCNR Funds Available

The application period for DCNR’s Community Conservation Partnerships Program opened January 14, 2015 and will close at 4:00 p.m. on April 16, 2015. This year, applicants will apply using DCNR’s new online grants portal. The new application system is menu driven and includes a number of enhancements to help users submit a complete and competitive application. Internal and external testing has shown that the interface is intuitive and user friendly.

Two grant training webinars were recently conducted and are posted at this link:
http://www.dcnr.state.pa.us/brc/grants/brcinteractivemapping1/trainingandworkshops/recordedwebinars/index.htm. These trainings offer an overview of DCNR’s grant program and a tutorial on the new grants portal.

We strongly recommend applicants contact their BRC Regional Recreation and Park Advisor to discuss proposed projects and program application requirements prior to submitting an application. To find your advisor, go to www.dcnr.state.pa.us/brc/index.htm and select “About Us.”

The Northeastern Pennsylvania Educational Television Association (also known as WVIA) has recently completed season three of their Greenlife Pennsylvania series. The theme is to “Think Globally, Act Locally,” and the series focuses on how Pennsylvanians are tackling universal environmental issues such as habitat loss and restoration, invasive species, and a loss of connection to the outdoors. This series shows how DCNR, our partners and grantees are using cutting-edge tactics with a can-do spirit to make our state a better place to live. The entire series can be viewed by clicking here and then by clicking on the “Videos” tab on the middle right side of the page.
