General Information About Our Grant Programs
The Washington Wildlife and Recreation Program (WWRP) provides funding
for parks, water access sites, trails, wildlife habitat, and farmland
preservation. The Recreation and Conservation Funding Board (RCFB)
administers several grant programs for recreation and habitat
conservation purposes. Depending on the program, eligible project
applicants can include municipal subdivisions of the state (cities,
towns, and counties, or port, utility, park and recreation, and school
districts), Native American tribes, state agencies, and in some cases,
federal agencies and nonprofit organizations.
Funded Projects and Applications
A complete listing of current grant applications and all projects funded
in this program can be accessed at our interactive maps feature-Grant
Project Locations. Depending on the criteria selected, this mapping
feature will provide specific location and detailed project information.
Eligible Grant Recipients
Municipal subdivisions, State agencies, and Tribal governments
(Local and tribal governments must provide at least 50 percent matching
funds in either cash or in-kind contributions).
Grant Evaluation Process
Grant applications are evaluated in eleven categories: critical habitat,
farmland, local parks, natural areas, riparian, state lands development
and renovation, state lands restoration and enhancement, state parks,
trails, urban wildlife habitat, and water access. Athletic facilities
are typically funded through the Local Parks category, which offers
grants on even years (like 2014).
