The Volusia County Council has extended the application deadline for the 2012-13 Environmental, Cultural, Historical and Outdoor Recreation (ECHO) grants program to May 1. This extension will provide organizations the opportunity to apply for a new grant and/or reapply with a grant that previously was deemed deficient or ineligible.
Organizations that did not attend a workshop in August must attend a workshop from 8:30 a.m. to noon Feb. 8 in the third-floor training room of the Volusia County Lifeguard Headquarters and Administration Center, 515 S. Atlantic Ave., Daytona Beach.
The workshop is free and open to the public.
ECHO grants are provided through a competitive application process annually and are for the purpose of acquiring, building or restoring environmental learning centers, cultural facilities, historical/ heritage facilities and outdoor recreation facilities that are open for public use.
Eligible applicants include 501(c)(3) not-for-profit groups that have a local office in Volusia County, municipal governments within Volusia County, and departments of Volusia County Government.
A copy of the ECHO grant guides and applications is available at www.volusia.org/echo.
