York County Open Space and Land Preservation Grant Program
The 2021 York County Open Space and Land Preservation Grant Program will be announced in the spring and the application period will open this summer. We will be evaluating applications and announcing grant awards in December.
Municipalities and charitable non-profit organizations with 501 (c) status may apply for funds to acquire land for natural resource protection or parkland. Funding is also available to York County municipalities to conduct planning studies and to develop portions of comprehensive plans and ordinances to address the County Comprehensive Plan’s open space, land protection, sensitive natural features, and agricultural protection related goals and objectives.
Check out the links below to get more information and apply for a grant.
The York County Open Space and Land Preservation Program is dedicated to helping communities and non-profit organizations around the County to preserve and protect open space that can be enjoyed by both current and future generations.
