New for 2013, the grant application, administration, and report will all be conducted online.

Here at POWR, we are ready and available to answer any questions and provide any support that we can to help you complete your application. Please contact Josh Karns at 717-230-8044 x305 or at with any questions, or just to let us know that you are working on an application.

Also, as soon as your sojourn dates are set and the event is a “go,” please let us know. We want to do everything we can to promote your event, and many sojourns will be announced prior to the final grant decisions.

This project is financed in part by a grant from the Community Conservation Partnerships Program, Keystone Recreation Park and Conservation Fund, under the administration of the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Bureau of Recreation and Conservation.
