Pennsylvania Conservation Corps:  Funds for Projects

[26 Pa.B. 4806]

   Funds for projects related to conservation, recreation, historical preservation, graffiti removal and the repair of institutional vandalism are available under the Pennsylvania Conservation Corps (PCC) program.

   Agencies eligible to apply for PCC projects are:

   *  The Departments of Labor and Industry, Conservation and Natural Resources, Environmental Protection, Public Welfare, Corrections, Military Affairs, Aging, Education and Economic and Community Development

   *  The Pennsylvania Game, Fish and Boat, and Historical and Museum Commissions

   *  The Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency

   *  Local political subdivisions (municipalities and school districts)

   *  Nonprofit agencies in cities of the first class (for projects involving the removal of graffiti and the repair of institutional vandalism only)

   The PCC program is designed to provide work experience and educational opportunities to unemployed young adults as they undertake needed projects on Pennsylvania's public lands. Funds available through the program may be used to purchase approved construction materials and contracted services (political subdivisions must provide a 25% cash match). The wages of corpsmembers and crewleaders are paid directly by the Department of Labor and Industry.

   Applications for PCC projects will be accepted from political subdivisions and eligible nonprofits through Friday, January 10, 1997. State agency applications will be accepted through Monday, March 3, 1997.
