NARROWSBURG – The Upper Delaware Council (UDC) reminds its member towns, townships, and county governments that applications for the 2008 round of the UDC’s Technical Assistance Grants (TAG) program must be received by 4:30 p.m. on Thursday, July 31.
Application packets including guidelines and a brochure of 1988-2007 TAG projects have been distributed to the eight New York towns, three Pennsylvania townships, and their four encompassing counties along the Upper Delaware River. The Wayne County, Pa. townships of Berlin, Buckingham, Damascus, and Manchester would be eligible to participate in this program if they joined the Upper Delaware Council.
The UDC’s Project Review Committee will convene a special meeting on Tuesday, August 12, at 6:30 p.m. at the Council’s Narrowsburg office to review the TAG submissions. Each applicant must send a representative to that meeting to explain the proposed project and answer any questions.
Announcement of grant awards is expected at the September 4 monthly UDC meeting to be held at 7:30 p.m. at the Council’s office in Narrowsburg.
Since the TAG program began in 1988, the Council has awarded $609,692 to help fund 173 projects that further the implementation of the Upper Delaware Scenic and Recreational River Management Plan.
