Parks and Trails Legacy Grant Program

The Parks and Trail Legacy Grant Program is no longer available through the Department of Natural Resources. Funding recommendations for parks and trails of regional significance outside of the seven county metropolitan area through the Parks and Trails Fund will be through the Greater Minnesota Regional Parks and Trails Commission. Please visit the Commission web page for application and contact information.

The Greater Minnesota Regional Parks and Trails Commission was established in 2013 to undertake system planning and provide recommendations to the legislature for grants funded by the parks and trails fund to counties and cities outside the seven-county metropolitan area for parks and trails of regional significance. Minnesota Statutes, 85.536
