State to Accept Grant Applications for Parks, Trails and Other Outdoor Recreation and Conservation Projects

February 4, 2020

Starting on February 13, 2020 the Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office (RCO) will begin accepting applications for WWRP grants to build parks, trails, ball fields, and water access, as well as to conserve wildlife habitat and working farms and forests.

These grants are the largest source of state funding for the majority of Washington’s outdoor recreation areas, and the only source of state funding for conserving working farms and forests. This is the only opportunity to apply for these grants until 2022, the deadline for all grants is May 1, 2020.

“These grant programs give cities, counties, tribes, land trusts, state agencies, and others the ability to improve their communities,” said Kaleen Cottingham, director of RCO, which administers the WWRP grant program.

RCO will also be offering an online workshop to showcase the grant opportunities and application requirements from 9:30-11:30 am. Register here for the free workshop and for more information about the RCO grant applications here.
