Funding offered for open space projects in Jefferson County

PORT TOWNSEND — Jefferson County is accepting applications for projects to protect open spaces in the county through its Conservation Futures Program.

Approximately $220,000 is available in the 2022 funding cycle, up to $39,727 of which is available to reimburse operations and maintenance expenses for any property acquired with the Conservation Futures Fund.

Project sponsors must match at least 50 percent of total project costs with non-county funds such as private donations, state or federal grants or the value of open space lands linked to the project.

Applications will be reviewed and ranked by the Conservation Futures Citizen Oversight Committee.

The committee evaluates project applications for their public benefit and makes recommendations to the Jefferson County Board of Commissioners which will, after a public hearing, decide which projects to fund.

Applications must be received at Jefferson County Environmental Health Department, 615 Sheridan St., Port Townsend, WA 98368 no later than Friday, March 25.

For more information or an application, call Tami Pokorny at 360-379-4498, email [email protected] or visit www.tinyurl.com/PDN-Open-Space.
