Illinois is awarding more than 30-million-dollars in grants for 87 local park projects across the state.  The grants will help communities acquire open space and develop and improve recreational facilities.  Governor Pritzker said park projects don’t just create jobs and boost local economic development, they open the gateway for a healthier, happier Illinois.
