City of Poplar Bluff Receives Grant Award



The National Park Service is pleased to provide you with the following information on a Land and Water Conservation Fund grant award that is ready for public release.

The LWCF State & Local Assistance Program provides matching grants for local and state park projects outside national park boundaries.  LWCF grants are locally determined and competed at the state level through a process designed and managed by our state partners. These grants help build and protect a "seamless system of parks" from back-yard to back-country.

Since 1965, the National Park Service has provided more than 40,000 LWCF grants to states and local communities. LWCF funding is separate from NPS operational appropriations and comes primarily from off-shore oil lease revenue through annual congressional appropriation.
