Friends of Penn-Trafford Area Recreation Commission has set a Feb. 15 deadline for community groups and municipalities within the Penn-Trafford School District to apply for a matching grant to rehabilitate parks and recreation facilities or develop new ones.

The nonprofit group will award grants for up to 25 percent of a project's cost. Grants are capped at $10,000.

The group will announce the grants in March. Payments will be disbursed upon the submission of copies of construction invoices.

Grant proposals must include:

• the name of the requesting organization with an address and contact information;

• a detailed description of the project, with itemized materials, photos, specifications and layout;

• the project address and location;

• an itemized price quote;

• project revenue sources;

• an explanation of the need for the project and whom it will benefit;

• a project timeline; and

• the annual budget for the organization.

Applications should be submitted to Friends of PTARC, 2001 Municipal Court, Harrison City, 15636. Contact Cheryl Kemerer at 724-744-2171 ext. 205 or for more information.
