2004 Gateways Grants Awarded
Thirty-three Grants to Improve Chesapeake Experiences

Annapolis, MD (09/28/04) - The National Park Service recently awarded over $1.5 million for thirty-three Gateways Grant projects. Matched by an equal amount in partner contributions, these grants will create over $3 million in improvements at Chesapeake Bay Gateways.

The Chesapeake Bay Gateways Network connects people with the Chesapeake Bay and its rivers through 140 parks, wildlife refuges, museums, historic communities and trails. Gateways are the special places where visitors can experience the authentic Chesapeake.

Gateways grants are one key tool for helping Chesapeake Bay Gateways enhance the public's ability to learn and enjoy the Chesapeake's stories and significance, explore its natural and cultural resources, and become involved in helping conserve and restore the Bay and its watershed. The National Park Service provides matching grants to Gateways for high-quality interpretation, access, or conservation and restoration projects. Through these projects and other Gateways Network efforts more and more people recognize the Chesapeake as a true national treasure.
