TINICUM TOWNSHIP, Oct. 8 – State Rep. David Delloso, D-Delaware, announced that a $62,900 state conservation grant was awarded to purchase Riverfront Marina at 101 Taylor Ave.

The grant was approved by the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources.

“The Delaware River has long been the lifeblood of the region, and I’m glad my office could help direct a quality state investment to recognize its importance to our community,” he said. “The marina can continue providing access to fishing, recreation and outdoor enthusiasts for generations to come.”

DCNR grants help communities and nonprofit organizations in Delaware County and across Pennsylvania acquire land for public parks and open space to be enjoyed by all for generations to come.

  • Grant funding assistance for acquisition of trail corridors, recreations areas, greenways, critical habitat and other open space by local government or nonprofit organizations.
  • Grant funding assistance for the purchase of conservation easements.
  • Grant funding assistance to organizations for large, landscape-scale planning efforts.

The DCNR Recreation and Conservation grant program is funded with state and federal funding including from the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund (Key 93), which includes Key-Community and Key-Land Trust; the Environmental Stewardship Fund; the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund; Pennsylvania Trails Fund; Pennsylvania Heritage Area Program; and the ATV Restricted Management Account Fund.
