Land and Water Conservation Fund grant cycle opening | Outside


The North Dakota Parks and Recreation Department is accepting applications for fiscal year 2022 grants from the Land and Water Conservation Fund beginning Friday.

The program helps fund outdoor recreation projects such as ball fields, swimming pools, campgrounds, playgrounds, and land acquisition for park development. Selected projects are expected to have the funding available next summer.

The 50/50 Matching Scholarship Program is federal but administered by the state. It is funded by offshore oil and gas royalties. Projects funded this year include a playground renovation at the McQuade Softball Diamonds in Bismarck.
