Grants of up to $10,000 to Southeastern Pennsylvania nonprofit organizations, local governments, and regional recreation authorities in eligible locations for the preservation and enhancement of public spaces. Funding is intended to support the acquisition of land and conservation easements, capital projects for passive recreation, habitat improvements, and planning and consultant fees. Requests will be accepted from nonprofit organizations in Philadelphia, and from local government entities within the funding source's service area in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and York Counties.
Recognizing that open space in our communities is crucial to the quality of our lives, PECO has committed to supporting municipalities, recreational authorities, and non-profits in southeastern Pennsylvania with their ongoing efforts to preserve, protect, and improve public spaces and increase our collective tree cover. PECO designed the PECO Green Region Open Space program to assist local communities in these efforts by providing funding for some expenses not otherwise covered by state or county programs. Underlying the program is PECO’s endorsement of enhancing tree cover and deliberate planning for open space protection as a means to encourage the wisest use of scarce resources.
The property and/or facility location of the project must be open to the general public and promote equal access to nature for all communities.
