Applications Now Being Accepted For PECO Green Region Open Space Grants

Municipalities and recreation authorities could receive grants of up to $10,000 as part of PECO’s Green Region Open Space Program administered by Natural Lands.  The deadline for applications is October 31.
“PECO remains committed to increasing the environmental sustainability of the communities we serve by supporting projects that will positively impact the region by creating and revitalizing new, green spaces across southeastern Pennsylvania,” said Mike Innocenzo, PECO president and CEO.
The grants, which have a 50 percent match requirement, can be used with other funding sources to cover expenses related to open space projects, such as consulting fees, trail construction, land acquisition, habitat improvement and the cost of creating and implementing an open space plan.
Eligible applicants include municipalities and regional recreational authorities within PECO’s suburban service territory, including portions of Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery and York counties. 
Within the City of Philadelphia, eligible applicants are limited to incorporated nonprofit organizations.
Since the program’s inception in 2004, the PECO Green Region Program has awarded more than $2 million for nearly 300 projects. 
Grant projects have resulted in 400 acres of open space being saved; 100 park upgrades; and the improvement of 14.5 miles of trails.
