Outdoor Recreation Grants Available

Applications are now being accepted for grants from the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). Public outdoor recreation projects sponsored by city, county, township and tribal governments are eligible to receive the grant money. The Land and Water Conservation Fund provides up to 50 percent reimbursement for approved outdoor recreation projects. Grants will be awarded for development or renovation of public outdoor recreation facilities or the acquisition of park land. The grants will be awarded for a minimum of $10,000 and the maximum will be $75,000 in federal funds.

The application deadline is October 31, 2018. LWCF funds are federal dollars that are apportioned to states by Congress to fund public outdoor recreation projects. Application packets are available on the Game, Fish and Parks website.
