The Open Space and Watershed Land Acquisition (OSWA) Grant Program provides financial assistance to municipalities and nonprofit land conservation organizations to acquire land for open space, and to water companies to acquire land to be classified as Class I or Class II water supply property.

Awards are granted to projects that offer the highest conservation and recreational value and that leverage the greatest percentage of private and municipal funding. DEEP also accepts applications from municipalities (often in partnership with non-profits) under the Urban Green and Community Garden Program. Funding for these grants is derived from State Bond funds and/or the Community Investment Act. Grants are based on the merit of the project and the level of funds available. Awards may not be made until adequate funding is available.
