National Park Service - Chesapeake is accepting project proposals from partners for financial assistance awards. Public access site development projects that advance the development of the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail and related water trails are the funding priority for fiscal year 2015.
The National Park Service is committed to the development of recreational opportunities for all citizens. In collaboration with many partners, the National Park Service works to expand public access to the Chesapeake Bay and tributary rivers and to build visitor experiences along the Captain John Smith Chesapeake National Historic Trail.
These community projects respond to local needs while advancing public access goals set through the Strategy for Protecting and Restoring the Chesapeake Bay Watershed, the federal response to President Obama’s Executive Order 13508.
