Outdoor Recreation Survey Help Massachusetts be Eligible for Federal Grants by Filling Out this Outdoor Recreation Survey The National Park Service requires the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to complete a Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP) every five years to remain eligible for funding from the Land and Water Conservation Fund grant program. Since the program was established in 1965, more than $100,000,000 has been awarded statewide to projects in every county in the state for the acquisition of conservation and park land, development of new parks, or renovation of existing parks. As a part of the SCORP update, the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs is asking for opinions on outdoor recreation and open space from municipal employees, land trusts, and all users of Massachusetts’ outdoor recreational facilities. The user survey should take about 10 minutes to complete. It is critical for us to hear from as many residents as possible to know how to best distribute LWCF funding over the next five years. The response deadline is October 31, 2022. Any questions should be directed to Melissa Cryan, LWCF Stateside Coordinator, at SCORP.2022@mass.gov. The surveys can be found online below.
