[ARCHIVED] York County Open Space and Land Preservation Grant Program – Now Accepting Applications

The County Commissioners have designated a percentage of preservation funds for the York County Open Space and Land Preservation Grant Program. This grant program provides opportunities for municipalities and nonprofits to provide matching funds for acquisition of parkland and lands for natural resource protection. A portion of the funding is also set aside for municipal planning and ordinance updates that support open space protection. 

New for 2022, Marcellus Shale Legacy funding will be distributed through the York County Open Space and Land Preservation Grant Program. This funding can be used for planning, acquisition, development, rehabilitation and repair of greenways, recreational trails, open space, natural areas, community conservation and beautification projects, community and heritage parks and water resource management. Funds may be used to acquire lands for recreational or conservation purposes and land damaged or prone to drainage by storms or flooding. 

This grant program provides an excellent source of matching funds for PA DCNR grants.
