The Michigan Department of Natural Resources today announced that communities interested in applying for grants through the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) to support outdoor recreation development have until March 1, 2008 to submit their applications.
The LWCF is a federal program, administered by the National Park Service (NPS) and managed by the DNR in Michigan. The program provides funding assistance for state and local outdoor recreation needs, including development of outdoor recreation facilities. This assistance is directed at creating and improving outdoor recreational opportunities and to create and maintain a nationwide legacy of high quality recreation areas and facilities and to stimulate non-federal investments in the protection and maintenance of recreation resources across the United States.
Types of development projects that are eligible for LWCF funding include non-motorized trails and riverwalks, skate and spray parks, playgrounds, athletic fields, picnic areas, and other types of outdoor recreation. Roughly $1 million in LWCF assistance is available annually.
Grant application materials can be obtained from the DNR Web site. Interested individuals also may call Grants Management at 517-373-9125, or write to: Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Grants Management, P.O. Box 30425, Lansing, MI 48909-7925.
