“Each year this important federal assistance program provides ongoing maintenance, restoration and development of park grounds and facilities,” said DLG Commissioner Sandra Dunahoo.  “At DLG we’re doing our part to ensure that the investment in these projects will create further opportunities to enhance the quality of life for all Kentuckians.”

The grant application deadline is April 30. The application template can be downloaded from the DLG website following this link:  http://kydlgweb.ky.gov/FederalGrants/16_LWCF.cfm.

The LWCF State Assistance Program was established by the LWCF Act of 1965 which was enacted to assist in preserving, developing, and assuring accessibility to all citizens and visitors outdoor recreational resources in perpetuity. Kentucky has utilized the LWCF funds in the acquisition, development and maintenance of parks throughout the Commonwealth.
