Henry County is seeking significant grant funding.

An application for up to $3 million in grant funds has been authorized by the Henry County Board of Commissioners. If received, the Conserve Georgia Grant through the Georgia Outdoor Stewardship Program would require a minimum match of 25 percent in-kind or cash. The county acquired property at Butler Bridge Road as part of a statewide greenspace program with the goal of preserving open space and conserving natural lands while also providing more recreational opportunities for the public, according to county staff. The money would support environmental restoration and creation of a public park that includes a kayak launch, water access and a trail system, officials said. Information: henrycounty-ga.com.
