Baker-Polito administration awards $990K to local state park projects

From the Worcester, MA Telegraph:

Continuing to make significant investments within the Massachusetts state parks system, the Baker-Polito administration recently announced $990,582 in funding to 26 municipalities, nonprofit organizations, and other entities as part of the fiscal 2019 Partnerships Matching Funds Program.

The program, which is administered by the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation, provides critical funds for projects that are proposed by park advocacy groups, civic and community organizations, institutions, non-state government partners, and individuals with an interest in improving the commonwealth’s natural, cultural, and recreational resources.

“Developing public, private partnerships remains a vital component of our administration’s efforts to leverage state dollars with private funds for common goals that directly benefit the public,” said Gov. Charlie Baker. “The funding provided to these 25 projects through the Partnerships Matching Funds Program will have a long-lasting impact on the commonwealth’s state parks system.”
