Land and Water Conservation Fund Grants Now Open!

April 3, 2017
The Land and Water Conservation Fund program provides matching grants to local units of government for the acquisition and development of public outdoor recreation sites and facilities. 
 
Any community interested in applying for LWCF assistance must first request a pre-approval site inspection.  The link to the request form is on the department's LWCF grant website, but for your convenience you can access that form by clicking on this link.
 
The purpose of this site inspection is to evaluate whether the site is eligible for funding assistance.  During this on-site meeting we will also discuss the proposed work and long term commitments of accepting LWCF assistance.  
 

PRE-APPROVAL SITE INSPECTION REQUEST DEADLINE is July 28, 2017.

APPLICATION DEADLINE is 5:00 PM on Friday, November 17, 2017
