The Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) Bureau of Recreation and Conservation (BRC) grant program for 2017 will be open January 23 until April 12 for statewide, regional, and local recreation and conservation projects.
Grants have been provided to almost 7,000 projects that have enhanced and protected the state’s waterways, trails, lands and recreation facilities. Grants will be considered for projects that best reflect Pennsylvania’s outdoor recreation priorities such as: community parks and recreation, land conservation, rivers implementation and trails.
