Lake area communities and school districts looking to do outdoor recreation projects may be able to receive some assistance from the national park service. Grant money from the land and water conservation fund is available to help create and maintain high quality outdoor recreation areas and facilities. That’s according to Steph Dietrich with the Missouri state parks.
Projects require a 55 percent match and can only be used for outdoor recreational purposes and open to the public. Around $750,000 dollars in grants is expected to be awarded this year in Missouri.
