Gardner Announces Over $400,000 in LWCF Grants for Colorado

Washington, DC – Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) announced the National Park Service (NPS) awarded three separate Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) grants to Colorado communities. 


Cherry Hills Village will receive $130,000 to construct a new section of the High Line Canal Trail Connection; El Paso County will receive $150,000 to construct sections of the Ute Pass Regional Trail; and the town of Bennett will receive $128,000 to construct a one mile section of the Bennett Open Space Trail.


“I’m pleased to announce Colorado will receive more than $400,000 in LWCF grants that will benefit three separate Colorado communities,” said Gardner. “Throughout my time in the Senate, I have supported LWCF because it is an essential tool that protects lands for future generations of Coloradans to enjoy. It is also an excellent example of a responsible fiscal partnership between the federal government and private enterprise. I’m thrilled to see three more Colorado communities benefit as a result of LWCF, and I will continue to advocate for LWCF funding on behalf of the Centennial State.”


Cory Gardner is a member of the U.S. Senate serving Colorado. He sits on the Energy & Natural Resources Committee, the Foreign Relations Committee, the Commerce, Science, & Transportation Committee, and the Small Business & Entrepreneurship Committee, and is the Chairman of the Subcommittee on East Asia, the Pacific, and International Cybersecurity Policy.
