Donor Name: Iowa Department of Natural Resources
County: All Counties
Type of Grant: Grant
Grant Duration: 2 Years
The City Parks and Open Space account receives 15% of the REAP funds, after initial distributions are made for competitive grants to help cities establish natural areas, encouraging outdoor recreation and resource management. Three categories have been established to assure grants are distributed to all sizes of cities. Projects considered include development of parks, multi-purpose trails (emphasis on connecting existing trails), park shelters, lake or river shoreline restoration, fishing access, and habitat restoration.
REAP stands for Resource Enhancement and Protection. It is a program in the State of Iowa that invests in, as its name implies, the enhancement and protection of the state’s natural and cultural resources.
Projects must be completed within two years of the grant award.
