NARROWSBURG – The Upper Delaware Council recently approved a $5,000 payment to Berlin Township, PA upon successful completion of its 2017 Technical Assistance Grant project.
The Berlin Township Board of Supervisors utilized the grant funding to hire Woodland Design Associates of Honesdale, PA to inventory all stormwater culvert located along township roads and add them as a Geographic Information Systems (GIS) layer to Berlin’s base map.
The UDC approved seven Fiscal Year 2017 Technical Assistance Grants (TAG) totaling $36,280 on Oct. 6, 2016. The deadline for project completions is August 18, 2017.
Since its inception in 1988, the UDC has awarded a cumulative total of $845,605 to fund 247 projects through the TAG program.
The grants are available competitively to the UDC’s 13 member towns and townships, and five encompassing county governments in NY and PA, for non-construction projects that address goals and needs identified in the River Management Plan for the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River.
