Type: 
Funding
Organization: 
The National Park Service
Description: 

Deadline Passed 09/14/2018. Deadline Unknown for 2019. The ORLP is a nationally competitive grant program funded through the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). The ORLP offers nationally competitive grants specifically to help create and improve state and locally-owned park and other outdoor recreation areas in ways that will help the public to access or re-connect with the outdoors, particularly in city neighborhoods that lack parks and recreational opportunities. Selected projects will help demonstrate how partners at all levels can work collaboratively to leverage investment and support close-to-home recreation opportunities that will help people access publicly-owned lands. The 2018 ORLP program targets low income neighborhoods with a new emphasis on the potential economic benefits of a project, particularly in terms of short and long-term job creation.
