Gov. Matt Bevin and the Department for Local Government (DLG) selected 20 Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) grants for total funding up to $758,000. These grants assist in maintaining and developing Kentucky’s state parks and park facilities. LCWF is funded by the National Park Service and is administered by DLG.
