Grants to Idaho cities, counties, state agencies, recreation districts, and school districts for the acquisition, development, and maintenance of property for outdoor recreation purposes. Applicants must consult with their regional specialist in developing an application. The purpose of this program is to ensure that quality recreation facilities are available to state residents.
IDPR grants are available to help cover the cost to acquire and/or develop land, which is to be used for public outdoor recreation uses. Acquisition of less than fee interest, such as easements and development rights, will be considered in the same manner as simple fee acquisition subject to the following conditions:
(1) The interest cannot be revocable;
(2) The value can be supported through standard appraisal techniques;
(3) Recreation can be demonstrated as the primary purpose of the acquisition.
Projects must address outdoor recreation needs as outlined in the current Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation and Tourism Plan (SCORTP) to be eligible.
LWCF administration is subject to all applicable state and federal statutes, rules, ordinances, and requirements.
Project sponsors and all contractors will be required to comply with all federal and state laws pertaining to equal opportunity employment, civil rights, competitive bidding and contracting procedures, acquisition procedures, etc.
All completed facilities must reasonably provide handicapped access and features, which comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act Guidelines. Failure to adequately provide disabled access is the most common factor delaying reimbursement.
Sponsors are expected to give all individuals the opportunity to use public facilities. Plans for handicapped accessibility must be clearly shown on all application materials. If a specific scope element is not going to be accessible, a clear explanation must be made in the application.
Projects must be clearly designed and located to primarily meet identified needs for general public outdoor recreation. They, secondarily, may provide a school district’s outdoor education, physical education and recreation facilities. Facilities to be used for varsity athletics are ineligible.
The LWCF includes a requirement that sponsors own or exercise control over properties to be developed with assistance from the fund. This can be done through outright ownership or through an easement.
