[ARCHIVED] Green Acres Funding Available - deadline to apply is March 30

Green Acres provides funding for local governments to acquire land, develop parks or conduct stewardship activities for outdoor recreation and conservation purposes. This year, the program is accepting applications for funding until March 30, 2019. 

Because funding is limited, the NJDEP will consider funding requests only from new applicants or from applicants who are making significant progress on their open acquisition and park development projects. Eligible land-acquisition projects include the purchase of natural areas, historic sites, conservation areas, waterbodies and open space for active or passive recreation. Eligible park development projects include facilities that provide boating, fishing, swimming, outdoor games and sports, biking, picnicking, camping or nature interpretation. Green Acres will also now accept applications for stewardship activities on your recreation and conservation lands.

Visit the NJDEP Green Acres web page or call 609-984-0570 with questions.
