Crystal Township talks park grant, community center

With some help from a $300,000 Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund (MNRTF) grant, the Crystal Township Board is now taking the first steps to bring its long-awaited park project to fruition.

Last week, MNRTF and Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced 117 recreation development projects and land acquisitions, totaling $45,592,200, will be funded in 2022.

Crystal Township hopeful to receive state grant money for park project

The Crystal Township Board hasn’t heard back yet from the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund (MNRTF) in regards to a park grant application, but township officials are hopeful.

For the past two years, the Crystal Township Board submitted a grant application the MNRTF to help fund some major improvements to Crystal Township Park. Neither grant application resulted in the township seeing any money.
