The purpose of the Livable Landscapes program is to protect the County’s important natural features by assisting municipalities and organizations to acquire, restore, and enhance permanently protected lands, to conserve natural resources and provide outdoor recreation for future generations. Since 2006, Northampton County awarded more than $15 million in Livable Landscapes grant program funding for local and regional park improvements, recreation, land conservation, and trail projects.
“This funding is essential to enhance the quality of life, outdoor recreation, open space, and health in our communities across the County,” remarks Sherry Acevedo, Conservation Coordinator in the Division of Parks and Recreation. “The value of our parks and open space are vital to our families as we enjoy close to home recreation and connect with nature.”
Livable Landscapes Grant submissions must be filed electronically by 1:00 PM, April 1st in PDF format. Applications and the required supporting documentation are to be emailed to Sherry Acevedo at firstname.lastname@example.org
For larger file sizes, please contact Sherry for more information.
