Grants to Park County, Colorado nonprofit organizations for the development and improvement of conservation sites and outdoor recreation areas. Funding is available for the development, maintenance, and acquisition of natural areas and historic sites, as well as the maintenance or capital improvement of public recreational areas.

The Conservation Trust Fund is comprised of proceeds from the Colorado Lottery, a share of which is distributed annually to each of the 64 counties in Colorado. The use of these funds is legally restricted to the following activities:

1. Acquisition, development, and maintenance of conservation sites in Park County (open space, conservation easements, historic sites, natural areas, habitat); or

2. Capital improvements or maintenance for recreation purposes on any public site (parks, trails, sports facilities, aquatic recreation areas, arenas, community centers).

All applications will be considered for funding, as long as the published criteria are met. However, priority will be given to applications in which: (a) the trust funds will be used as “seed” money to leverage larger grants from other organizations,(b) the trust funds will be used for acquisition, development and capital improvement projects and (c) groups which are self sustaining.
