Federal Requirements

The Land and Water Conservation Fund Act of 1965, as amended, provides matching grants to states and local units of government for acquisition and development of public outdoor recreation areas and facilities. Funds for the program are derived from entrance or admission fees to federal recreation areas, Outer Continental Shelf revenues from leasing oil and gas sites in coastal waters, federal surplus real property sales and a small portion of federal motorboat fuel taxes. All applicants for federal funding assistance must also satisfy the requirements delineated in the “National Park Service’s Land and Water Conservation Fund Grants Manual,” Parts 600 through 685.
