2020 Outdoor Recreation Grant workshop tour

Office Outdoor Recreation Logo
Join Office of Outdoor Recreation staff at workshops around the state to learn more about these three unique grant opportunities!

  • The Utah Outdoor Recreation Grant (UORG) provides matching grant funding to build new outdoor recreation infrastructure. UORG projects offer economic opportunities, enhance quality of life, and provide social and health benefits. Outdoor recreation infrastructure projects include trails, boat ramps, archery ranges, mountain bike parks, and more. 
  • The Recreation Restoration Infrastructure (RRI) grant helps fund restoration and rehabilitation of existing outdoor recreation infrastructure. RRI projects help alleviate the backlog of maintenance for outdoor recreation projects on public lands. Areas that receive the highest visitation will be prioritized, including trails, campgrounds, day-use areas, water recreation infrastructure, and more.

  • The Utah Children’s Outdoor Recreation and Education (UCORE) grant program helps fund programs that provide high-quality, outdoor-focused learning experiences to youth ages 6-18, and teaches children the physical skills that can make outdoor recreation part of a healthy and active lifestyle. UCORE complements the state’s Every Kid Outdoors (EKO) initiative and hopes to provide more opportunities so no child is left inside.
