All Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund (MNRTF) grant applications require an approved Recreation Plan. The next MNRTF grant application deadline is April 1, 2013, with your Recreation Plans due March 1, 2013. MNRTF grants up to $300,000 for park development projects with a 25% local match requirement. MNRTF also helps applicants acquire park land with grant amounts decided on a case-by-case basis. Acquisition grants over $1,000,000 are possible, with no match requirement.
If you plan to apply for a 2013 MNRTF grant, and need help developing or updating your Recreation Plan, contact Jim Hegarty at Prein&Newhof.
