Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) Grants: The TPWD administers the LWCF program in Texas, which provides funding for the acquisition and development of outdoor recreation areas and facilities. Eligible applicants include cities, counties, and other local government entities.
Urban Outdoor Recreation Grants: This program provides funding for the development of outdoor recreation facilities in urban areas. Eligible applicants include cities, counties, and other local government entities.
To apply for any of these grant programs, you will need to submit an online application through the TPWD’s electronic grant system.
