The Utah Office of Outdoor Recreation will begin accepting applications on January 16. The project will enhance recreational opportunities and amenities in Utah’s communities.

Proposed projects must offer an economic opportunity for the community with the potential to attract or retain residents and/or increase visitation to the region. The infrastructure must be open and available to the public. Grants are to be used toward building infrastructure, not project planning or property purchase.

UORG Tier 1 award amounts will range from $15,001-$200,000. For smaller projects, consider the UORG Mini-Grant, which funds $500-$15,000 for smaller projects and includes a more streamlined application process.

Regional Asset Tier UORG funding of $750,000 will be available for large outdoor recreation projects that will cost more than $3,000,000. For rural counties, a 50/50 match is sufficient for the Regional Asset Tier. The UORG Scoring Committee has discretion in the number of Regional Asset Tier projects and the awarded amount. The most competitive projects will focus on using UORG funds to support outdoor recreation elements rather than surrounding infrastructure, such as bathrooms or parking lots.

Tier 1 has a county-based matching scale from 20% to 50%. The specific county match requirements are in the full guidelines document.

Regional Asset Tier has a 50% match requirement.

This is a reimbursement grant, with funding given after the applicant’s spend. However, on-the-spot funding help is available. Up to 75% of the matched monies may be given before completion of the project. Final funding is contingent upon inspection of completed project.

Municipalities, counties, tribal governments, and non-profit organizations.. The built recreational infrastructure must provide an economic opportunity for the local area with the ability to increase visitation, boost local businesses and/or attract and retain residents.
