Natural Resources Trust Fund Board

The Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund Board’s primary function is to submit to the Legislature a priority list of lands recommended for acquisition and/or development through the Natural Resources Trust Fund Grant Program, which supports development and improvement of public outdoor recreation opportunities across the state. The board also provides guidance to the DNR staff responsible for evaluating grant applications, making project recommendations and administering projects funded by the grant program.
