The Washington Recreation and Conservation Office (RCO) announced that it will soon take grant applications for outdoor projects.

The RCO intends to award grants for the construction of trails, parks, and boat moorage in addition to farm, wildlife, and forest conservation. According to a report, they will start accepting grant applications in the middle of February.

“These grants give communities the help they need to improve their outdoor recreation amenities so more people can benefit from being outside,” said Megan Duffy, RCO’s director.

“They also help support local businesses. Our studies show that outdoor recreation facilities create jobs, attract tourists and generate money for businesses.”

The RCO believes that the grants are essential to Washington‘s outdoor recreational opportunities and provide the only source of funds for nature conservation projects.

They will host an online workshop on February 17 to divulge grant opportunities and requirements. The registration for the workshop is free of charge and can be accessed here.

“Communities always bring great projects, which makes selecting grants challenging,” said Duffy. “We have advisory committees made up of residents and people with experience in recreation and conservation score the projects in public meetings to ensure the selection is fair and that the best of the best get funded.”

The deadline for applications is on May 3. More details about the grant here.
