Hanover Park, IL — State Representative Jennifer Sanalitro is announcing the receipt of significant grant awards for park districts within the 48th House District, as part of the 2024 Open Space Land Acquisition & Development (OSLAD) program administered by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources.

Sanalitro expressed her excitement for the grants: “Local parks are places where families and neighborhoods come together and connect so I am proud to see these funds being used to enhance the health well-being of our communities. These awards demonstrate significant investment in our park districts and speak to our commitment to enhance the quality of life for every resident across the State.”

The following park districts and municipalities within Representative Sanalitro’s district are the proud recipients of these 2024 OSLAD grants:

The funds will be instrumental in developing and enhancing local parks and recreational facilities and ensure they continue to be vibrant spaces for community gatherings, sports, leisure, and environmental appreciation.
