The Outdoor Recreation Legacy Partnership (ORLP) is a nationally competitive urban grant program funded through the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF). The program was created in 2014 and offers grants specifically to help low-income communities that are lacking parks and other outdoor recreation resources access or re-connect with the outdoors.
Grants support the acquisition and development of land to create new or renovate existing state and local parks and other outdoor recreation spaces located in urban areas. With full and dedicated funding of the LWCF in 2020, the ORLP received a large funding boost. In this session, learn how your organization can apply to the ORLP program.
