Applications Sought for Land and Water Conservation Fund Grants in Alaska
ANCHORAGE—The Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation is accepting grant applications for development or enhancement of facilities related to public outdoor recreation. Eligible applicants include state, regional, or local governments (cities, boroughs or tribal entities) that have the legal authority to provide park and recreation services on public lands.
The Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) grant program provides up to 50 percent matching assistance for the cost of a project. The Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation anticipates $1.5 million may be awarded to eligible Alaska projects.
Grant requests are limited to $25,000 minimum and $250,000 maximum in LWCF federal share. The total project cost must be at least $50,000 to justify a $25,000 grant request.
