LWCF State Assistance Formula Grants - State Planning - FY21 Cycle 2

The LWCF State and Local Assistance program is operated by the National Park Service (NPS) in partnership with designated lead agencies in each of the 50 States as well as American Samoa, the District of Columbia, Guam, the Northern Marianas Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U. S. Virgin Islands.


fiscal year Congress allocates money from the LWCF for this program, which is in turn allocated to the States based on a legislative formula.

To be eligible to submit applications for funding, States must have a current Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan, or SCORP, in place that assesses demand and need for outdoor recreation resources and sets priorities for the use of LWCF funds.

LWCF grants are available to the States to comply with this legislative requirement.

The NPS must review and approve each State’s SCORP.

A new or updated SCORP must be prepared at least once every 5 years.
