has previously been scared away by
the population or urban area boundary
requirement, it's a good time to
consider the program again for your
park development needs.
Another important change to the
program is that the maximum grant
award has increased from $5 million
to $10 million during this award cycle.
This will allow larger projects to
receive funding from the DOI. The
department also has announced that
a priority for awards will be ones that
take into account the " project's contributions
to increasing access to nature's
benefits, such as green spaces,
shady areas and natural landscapes,
that help provide climate benefits,
such as heat island reduction. "
The DOI and the NPS are hopeful
these changes will encourage
more cities to apply for the funding.
" The
Outdoor
Recreation
Legacy Partnership program is essential
to expand our communities'
connections to urban green spaces,
where children can play, families
can connect, and a love and appreciation
for
the
outdoors can
be nurtured, " says Deb Haaland,
secretary of the DOI. " The funding
and programmatic changes we
are announcing today will allow
for us to support bigger ideas and
more communities in their pursuit
of creating more parks and places
to get outside for every American. "
