Category Overview

State Parks grants help preserve and develop our state’s best outdoor recreation areas by funding new campgrounds and amenities to increase the capacity of our parks, creating new parks, improving park resources, and protecting historical areas. These grants help our state continue to develop our world-class parks system to share our cultural heritage and natural treasures with all of its visitors.

Project Highlights

State Parks will use this grant to buy high-priority land within or next to state parks. This grant is intended to be a flexible source of funding for smaller, lower-cost, priority purchases that present themselves throughout the biennium. It will allow State Parks to act quickly and opportunistically to purchase land as it comes on the market, and to buy smaller but important land that might not score well as individual competitive grants, but is nonetheless essential to park operations.
