Recreation Grants

Land & Water Conservation Fund Project (LWCF)

Grants
Project sponsors such as cities, towns, counties, school and recreation districts are eligible to apply for L&WCF monies. The L&WCF is a matching grant program based upon a fifty percent (50%) reimbursement of the total cost of the project. Only costs for the development and/or acquisition of public outdoor recreation lands and facilities are eligible for assistance.

A successful grant applicant must agree to dedicate the park or area where the project is located for use by the public for perpetuity. In addition, the grantee must also agree to develop, operate and maintain the development to acceptable National Park Service (NPS) standards for public outdoor recreation. All applications must meet a State Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP) identified need and will then be numerically ranked by the Open Project Selection Process (OPSP). Grants for matching funds are subject to approval by the NPS. All costs must be incurred after the project has received approval from the NPS.

Grant applications are to be mailed into this agency postmarked no later than December 31st, 2014. All applications will be prioritized and approved by the Wyoming State Parks and Cultural Resource Commissioners and then mailed to the NPS for their review and approval. It is anticipated the NPS will provide final approval by October 1st of each year. All billing requests must be received within a two year period from the final approval date.
