Gov. Haslam Awards $6.9 million in Grants

Gov. Bill Haslam and Environment and Conservation Commissioner Bob Martineau announced  a total of $6.9 million in local parks and recreation fund grants to 50 recipients across the state.  "Our quality of life is directly linked to the quality of our parks and outdoor spaces," Haslam said. "Recreational facilities are important not only to Tennesseans but for the many visitors we attract to our state each year. I've had the opportunity to visit several of these communities throughout the last few weeks and I am pleased to be in a position to provide funding for the benefit of all Tennesseans." The Local Parks and Recreation Fund grant program was established by the General Assembly in 1991 to provide local governments with funds to purchase land for parks, natural areas, greenways and recreational facilities. The funds also may be used for development of trails and projects in parks, natural areas and greenways.
