Grants to Missouri governmental agencies and public schools to develop and acquire outdoor recreation areas that are accessible to the public. The purpose of the program is to create and sustain high quality outdoor recreation facilities and areas in the state and to maintain and protect local recreation resources.
Projects that are recommended for funding by GMS are those that demonstrate an ability to meet the needs outlined in the 2018-2022 Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP), which is available at the link below. The SCORP serves as a framework for the planning, development, management and protection of Missouri’s outdoor recreation resources.
