Learn About Outdoor Recreation Grant Opportunities Opening in May


Municipalities and other organizations interested in learning about 2024 outdoor recreation grant opportunities administered by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission are invited to a virtual webinar on April 15.

Join the webinar at 11 a.m. Central time to learn about the Land and Water Conservation Fund and the Recreational Trails Program. Participants will be given an overview of the grant programs as well as tips on applying.

The Land and Water Conservation Fund is for outdoor recreation projects such as swimming pools, picnicking facilities, sports fields, playgrounds, pool renovations, splash pads, park acquisitions and development, wildlife viewing facilities, fishing access, adventure spots (such as ziplines and rock-climbing) and park-related support facilities.

The Recreational Trails Program is for motorized or non-motorized trails, covering acquisition, development, maintenance, and trail-related support facilities.

Eligible applicants include villages, cities, public power districts and Natural Resource Districts. Both programs are reimbursable grants and vary in the percentage of match (50%-80%) and the maximum funding ($250,000-$600,000).
