Outdoor Recreation Legacy Partnership Grant Program
The Outdoor Recreation Legacy Partnership (ORLP) Program aims to provide new or significantly improved recreation opportunities for economically disadvantaged communities that lack public outdoor recreation spaces. Administered under the
Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) Act and almost entirely managed by the National Park Service (NPS), the program supports the creation of new parks or the development of existing sites that improve access and establish stronger connections between people and the outdoors.
When is the next grant round?
The NPS has announced that the seventh round of ORLP is now open. CPW will open its ORLP grant round in early January 2024 for project selection at the state level before submission to the NPS for the national competition.
Join the mailing list to be notified when the CPW ORLP grant round goes live.
