Rep. Matt Baker (R-Tioga / Bradford) has announced that the Community Conservation Partnerships Program (CCPP) has awarded grant money to two local parks, Hamilton Township Park and the Cherry Street Park in the Lawrenceville Borough, to enhance recreational opportunities and community life.
“These grants for our community parks will do a great deal to improve the quality of life in Tioga County,” said Baker. “I thank the Community Conservation Partnerships Program and the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources for recognizing how vital recreational parks are to the communities they serve.”
Each park is receiving $40,000 in grant money from CCPP to go toward play equipment with required safety surfacing, ADA access, parking areas, and other related site improvements.
CCPP is administered by the Department of Conservation and National Resources (DCNR) and receives funding from state and federal sources. This program is committed to provide assistance to local governments and various nonprofits for the development of park, recreation, conservation, and greenway projects.
