New York State offers park improvement grants

ALBANY — A fifth round of competitive grants has been announced by Parks & Trails New York and the state Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation.

The grants, this year doubled to $1 million, are available to organizations — typically referred to as “friends groups” — which support parks, trails, historic sites, and public lands.

The grant program is administered by PTNY in partnership with OPRHP. It is designed to:

■ Enhance the preservation, stewardship, interpretation, environmental education, maintenance, and promotion of New York State parks, trails, historic sites, and public lands.

■ Increase the sustainability, effectiveness, productivity, volunteerism, and fundraising capabilities of not-for-profit organizations that promote, maintain and support NYS parks, trails, historic sites, and public lands.
