Pitt-Bradford site for 2013 DCNR grant workshop


Pitt-Bradford will present a grant workshop webinar from the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources. 

            The free webinar can be seen from 10:30 a.m. to noon March 13 in Room 200 of the Seneca Building at 2 Main Street, Bradford.

            The workshop will prepare applicants to meet the requirements of Community Conservation Partnerships Programs for sustainable and green parks projects, trails, land conservation, emerging recreation trends and more. The workshop will assist community leaders, consultants, board members and park and recreation professionals interested in learning about resources available to plan, acquire and construct public recreation and conservation areas in their communities.

            The deadline for grant applications is April 10. Those attending the workshop will learn about DCNR’s emphasis on greening, learn about changes to the 2013 grant program and gain a better understanding of how to develop a competitive and ready-to-go project.
