Through our grant programs, the Utah Office of Outdoor Recreation hopes to support the mission of ensuring Utahns can live a healthy and active lifestyle through outdoor recreation. These are the grant opportunities available in 2021:
Utah Outdoor Recreation Grant (UORG) Tier 1 is for new outdoor recreation infrastructure projects and helps communities build recreation amenities that support local economic development and funds projects from $10,001-$150,000. Learn more here.
UORG – Regional Asset Tier funds up to $500,000 for large projects with a total value of at least $2 million.
UORG – Mini-Grant is ideal for smaller projects. The grant award funds between $500-$10,000. If your project requires only a small investment to complete your project, the mini-grant may be a good fit.
