DCR Commissioner Carol I. Sanchez announces DCR Partnerships Matching Funds Program.

PRESS RELEASE, May 22, 2015

Dear Partners:
I am pleased to announce the launch of the first phase of the FY16 DCR Partnerships Matching Funds Program.

The Partnerships Matching Funds Program accepts applications from park advocacy groups, civic and community organizations, institutions, businesses, non-state government partners and individuals with an interest in improving the Commonwealth’s natural, cultural and recreational resources.

DCR considers applications that will provide a match of non-state funds for capital projects in state parks. If approved, DCR will match partner contributions 1:1 and will consider a 2:1 match in some instances. Each selected project will be assigned a DCR project manager to oversee implementation of the project in close consultation with our partners.

Those interested in applying for a Matching Funds grant must first submit a PMFP-2016-Project-Concept-Form to DCR by Tuesday, June 23, 2015. Completed forms may be: Emailed to: Tom Reece subject line “FY16 Partnerships Matching Funds Program” Faxed to: Tom Reece at 617-626-1351 Mailed to: Tom Reece, Director of Partnerships Partnerships Matching Funds Program Department of Conservation and Recreation Office of External Affairs and Partnerships 251 Causeway Street, Suite 600 Boston, MA 02114
