Utah State Parks and Recreation is proud to administer four grant programs:
Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) is a federally-funded program established to assist government agencies with creation of high-quality, public outdoor recreation facilities. LWCF grants have been used to construct golf courses, swimming pools and parks.
The 2016 grant application is now available for download. The instructions for filling out the application and grant requirements are included with the preliminary application package. The DI-2010 is required along with the completed application. All applications must be postmarked by May 1, 2016.
Utah Off-highway Vehicle Trails Program is funded from state off-highway vehicle registrations and a small share of the Utah motor fuel tax. This grant program is available to federal agencies, political subdivisions of the state, and organized user groups for construction, improvement, operation, or maintenance of publicly-owned or administered motorized trails and facilities.
The federally-funded Recreational Trails Program (RTP) has helped with non-motorized and motorized trail development and maintenance, trail educational programs, and trail related environmental protection projects.
