City Parks Alliance, with our partners National League of Cities, National Recreation and Park Association, and Trust for Public Land, is hosting an Outdoor Recreation Legacy Partnership (ORLP) technical assistance webinar with the National Park Service (NPS) September 13 2:00pm-3:30pm. NPS staff will provide details on applicant and project eligibility, give tips on writing a strong ORLP application, explain the application and selection process, and answer questions.

Established in 2014, the ORLP is a nationally competitive grant program funded through the Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF), that focuses on economically disadvantaged communities with little to no access to outdoor recreation opportunities in urban areas. Under the current grant round, NPS has $192 million available for land acquisition, new park development, or the substantial renovation of existing parks, to (re)connect people with the outdoors.
