Funding

The NPS is no longer supporting municipal incentive grants. There is an annual federal appropriations process and budgeting for the Lower Delaware. This is done through the following Non-Government Agencies (NGO’s) or Partners:

    The mission of the Hunterdon Land Trust is to preserve and protect the rural character and natural resources of Hunterdon County. The Delaware River Scenic Corridor's spectacular natural vistas, forested ravines, historic villages, and critical trail connectors are some of the natural and cultural resources in this area. This region boasts spectacular views of the Delaware River Valley from Hunterdon County across to Bucks County, Pennsylvania, and State Route 29 ,the first designated scenic byway in New Jersey and also a designated Federal Scenic Byway. This stretch of the Delaware River has also received federal Scenic & Recreational River designation, with the Lower Delaware Wild and Scenic River Management Committee and the National Park Service charged with implementation of a management plan for the corridor to protect scenic values and water quality and expand and improve public recreational opportunities.

  • Delaware River Basin Commission
    A breakthrough in water resources management occurred in 1961 when President Kennedy and the governors of Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and New York for the first time signed concurrent compact legislation into law creating a regional body with the force of law to oversee a unified approach to managing a river system without regard to political boundaries. The members of this regional body - the Delaware River Basin Commission (DRBC) - include the four basin state governors and the Division Engineer, North Atlantic Division, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, who serves as the federal representative.
