Arizona State Parks is responsible for managing Grant Programs administered by the Arizona State Parks Board. Programs include the Off-Highway Vehicle Recreation Program, Motorized and Non-Motorized Recreational Trails Programs (RTP), and the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) Program.
All grant programs operate on a reimbursement basis. Reimbursements to grantees are made according to the percentage specified in the participant agreement for eligible expenditures included within the project’s approved scope of work.
Grant administration is accomplished through the development of application guidelines and a priority rating system, the execution of Participant Agreements and Preservation Conservation Easement Deeds with grantees, and the subsequent monitoring of administrative compliance, expended funds, and project work.
