Any non-profit park or recreational organization that is open to the general public in the

Greencastle-Antrim community serving citizens of Antrim Township may apply for

funding, according to a news release from the township.

In addition to the $32,000 allocation, the three Ruritan clubs located in Antrim

Township (Shady Grove, State Line and Kauffman) have been allotted $5,000 each for

improvements at their facilities.

Applications and program guidelines may be obtained at the Antrim Township Municipal Office, 10655 Antrim Church Road, Greencastle, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. They also may be obtained from the website or by calling 717-597-3818, ext. 122.

The Antrim Township Park Committee will review the applications and make recommendations to the supervisors. Funding will be available in April 2017 for organizations chosen for a grant,

with funds to be used and receipts returned to Antrim

Township for audit by Nov. 3, 2017.
