From Natural Lands Trust:
In celebration of the 10th anniversary of the PECO Green Region program, PECO has provided 18 municipalities and five nonprofit organizations with $150,000 in grant funding for environmental projects throughout the Greater Philadelphia region. PECO Green Region, the company’s municipal open space and environmental grant program, has awarded nearly $1.4 million for more than 180 projects since its inception in 2004.
Recognizing the importance of fostering future environmental leaders, PECO and Natural Lands Trust – administrator of PECO Green Region – also are offering a special 10th anniversary round of grants dedicated to environmental projects that benefit our region’s youth. Municipalities can apply for a $10,000 grant to be used to develop projects such as gardens, natural playscapes and nature trails. Grants will be awarded to one municipality in Bucks, Chester, Delaware and Montgomery counties and one nonprofit in Philadelphia.
