Grants to Minnesota local governments in eligible locations for the enhancement and expansion of recreational trails and parks. Funding is intended to support restoration and development projects as well as related land acquisition to improve existing trails and parks, trail systems, and infrastructure that are of importance on a statewide or regional level. Local governments located outside the seven-county metropolitan area are eligible to apply for funding.
Considerations for Funding
The following application guidance outlines the Commission’s goals for funded facility projects:
Connecting People to the Outdoors funding is available to cities and counties with regionally designated parks and trails. Funds may be used for agencies or contracts to deliver programming and/or improved accessibility to outdoor recreation based out of the regional park or trail. For the criteria, see:
Special Funding Opportunity
For Fiscal Year 2022, the GMRPTC is allocating $250,000 for Connecting People to the Outdoors programming and disadvantaged population accessibility projects, as defined by the Funding Guidelines and Criteria. Projects must be tied to at least one regionally designated facility. The Commission reserves the right to refuse all or any projects under this classification if the applications do not fulfill the criteria adequately. If the full allocation of funds is not used, remaining funds will be re-allocated towards the complete pool of project applications.
