It was just announced by the governor’s office that the LUMBER HERITAGE REGION has been awarded $300,000 for our most recent Community Conservation and Partnerships Program (C2P2) grant through the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR)! This will allow us to offer a mini-grant program; restore a forest fire tower; support tourism promotion and marketing campaigns; develop interactive display cases, and conduct education and outreach programs.
”We are extremely happy to be able to support the communities in the 15-county region. Since I started writing the grants in 2018, we have tripled our financial support from DCNR and our communities are seeing the benefits.” States Holly Komonczi Executive Director.
The LHR is a 15-county region in North West/North Central Pennsylvania that accentuates the importance of the lumber industry for the past, present, and future. The goal of the heritage region is to market its assets to potential visitors, to serve as a resource to the PA hardwood industry, and to keep the economic impact of the region in the forefront.
LHR is a 501C3 organization that is dedicated to helping the region make an impact internationally. It is our mission to serve the region with technical, educational, and financial assistance through the coordination of networking and communication initiatives.
