the Recreation and Conservation Office grant Available to build or improve outdoor recreational facilities.
The grant programs accepting applications are just three of the 15 grant programs administered by the Recreation and Conservation Office. Since 1964, the office has administered nearly $1.5 billion for more than 6,700 projects across the state. These grants help build recreational facilities, create jobs and give local communities the ability to improve the services offered to residents, said Kaleen Cottingham, director of the Recreation and Conservation Office. Without them, many communities couldn’t afford to build these facilities. Investment in Washington’s great outdoors helps ensure Washington remains a great place to live, work and play.
