The Delaware Land and Water Conservation Trust Fund (DTF) was established in 1986 as an investment of state monies to provide an annual source of funding for the acquisition of open space and the development of outdoor recreation projects. Since that time the Fund has provided over $17 million in matching grant assistance to local governments throughout Delaware. The DTF Grant Program is administered by the Delaware Division of Parks and Recreation, Department of Natural Resources & Environmental Control.
Annually, Trust-earned income is split equally between park projects and greenway/trail projects. The Program is designed to assist local governments and park districts by providing matching grants for the planning, acquisition, and development of parks, greenways and trails.
When a Sponsor accepts Delaware Land and Water Conservation Trust Fund grant assistance, the Sponsor agrees to dedicate the land acquired or improved with Trust Fund assistance to public outdoor recreation use in perpetuity and assume responsibility for continuing operation, maintenance and stewardship of the area.
