The North Dakota Parks & Recreation Department is hosting a Land & Water Conservation Fund Grant Workshop. We invite anyone who is looking to apply for a Land & Water Grant during the current or a future cycle. This workshop will cover a general overview of the Land and Water Conservation Fund, Title VI compliance, grant application writing tips, and more!
The Land and Water Conservation Fund is a federal program funded by offshore oil and gas royalties that was created by Congress in 1964 to safeguard natural areas, water resources, cultural heritage and to provide recreation opportunities to all Americans. NDPRD administers North Dakota’s stateside program and has been apportioned over $1.5 million for Fiscal Year 19. North Dakota has granted over $38 million to over 1,100 projects in 53 counties through this program. Eligible project sponsors include cities, counties, and townships; park and school districts; state agencies; water management districts and Federally recognized Indian tribes.
