Outdoor Recreation Marketing Grants Available from Game and Parks

LINCOLN – The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is offering $100,000 in marketing grants to promote outdoor recreation. The program is designed to support Game and Parks’ goals of increasing participation in outdoor recreation through collaboration with partners.

The grants are for communities, groups, organizations, public-private partnerships, nongovernment agencies or political subdivisions looking for help in promoting outdoor recreation to spur tourism and economic development.

While all projects, events and campaigns must promote outdoor recreation, preference is given to marketing campaigns promoting hunting, fishing and Game and Parks’ public areas (wildlife management areas, state parks, state recreation areas, and Open Fields and Waters sites). These areas are where the public may participate in outdoor recreational activities, conservation efforts, stewardship of natural resources or similar initiatives supporting Game and Parks’ outreach, education and marketing goals.

The individual grant amounts will range from $2,000 to $25,000, and grants will be awarded on a reimbursement basis.

The application deadline is March 28, 2014. Grants will be awarded April 30. Reimbursement will begin May 1, 2014 and must be completed by June 30, 2015.
