Utah Outdoor Recreation Grant Applications Now Open
The Utah Outdoor Recreation Grant (UORG) was created by the Office of Outdoor Recreation to help build tourism in communities around the state with the development of outdoor recreation amenities. These new or expanded outdoor recreational opportunities aid in the economic development of communities. Many communities in Utah find that close proximity to recreational opportunities adds to the quality of life of citizens, aids in attracting new residents, and can lead to property values increasing. Companies - particularly high-tech firms - view close proximity to outdoor recreation amenities as vital to attracting and keeping high value employees. This grant cycle, the Utah Office of Outdoor Recreation plans to increase the value of the the grant awards for larger projects.
