    To Preserve Land and Streams in Franklin County

    The Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission (MORPC) announces the availability of over $4.1 million of Clean Ohio Conservation Funds (COCF) in Round 13 for District 3-Franklin County from the Natural Resources Assistance Council (NRAC).  The COCF is part of the Clean Ohio program approved by voters in 2008.  The COCF can be used for the acquisition of green space and the protection and enhancement of river and stream corridors.  The Natural Resources Assistance Council reviews funding applications and selects applications for approval using the selection methodology it has established.  Local governments, park and joint recreation districts, conservancy districts, soil and water conservation districts, and non-profit organizations located in Franklin County are eligible to apply for the grant funds. 

    Potential applicants should submit a preliminary screener to determine if the project is eligible and to receive constructive comments for the final application. The deadline for the preliminary screener is 5:00 p.m. on December 28, 2018, and the final application is due by 5:00 p.m. on March 15, 2019.

    Applications and information are available under the “Tools & Resources/Funding & Grants” tab on the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission’s website at www.morpc.org or by clicking here.
