"W. Out of the amounts for Financial Assistance for Historic Preservation, $2,000,000 the second year from the general fund is provided to the County of Fairfax to contract with NOVA Parks to support the purchase and conservation of River Farm, located at  7931 E. Boulevard Drive in Alexandria, Virginia."


(This amendment provides for the one-time appropriation of $2.0 million GF for a grant to the County of Fairfax for the preservation of River Farm. Leveraged with federal and private funds, this support from the Commonwealth would help assure that this historic property on the Potomac will be open to the public for generations to come. This funding to the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority, a subdivision of the Commonwealth, will support a purchase option proposed jointly by the Northern Virginia Regional Park Authority and the Northern Virginia Conservation Trust. Extensive research on the natural and historic features of this property, in addition to recent appraisal, support this effort.)
