Community Park, Recreation, Open Space and Greenways plans are commonly referred to as a “5-Year Recreation Plan.”
To be eligible to apply for Land and Water Conservation Fund, Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund, and Waterways grants, a community must have an approved 5-Year Plan on file with the DNR by February 1 of the year they intend to apply.
To be eligible for Recreation Passport Grants, a community must either have an approved 5-Year Plan on file with the DNR in MiRecGrants by February 1 of the year they intend to apply, or submit a Capital Improvement Plan with their application.
If you have any questions as you prepare your recreation plan, please contact Grants Management at 517-284-7268.
