The Missoula County Parks, Trails & Open Lands Program frequently partners with non-profit organizations to improve and maintain County parks and other public recreation areas. In these partnerships, the Park Board provides planning assistance and funding. In turn, the partner organization matches those funds through a combination of project expenses, in-kind donations and volunteer service hours.
The program has $50,000 of funding to award annually for projects that provide outstanding public recreation opportunities. There is no limit on the award amount. A minimum 1:1 match is required for all cash expenses. Volunteer hours and in-kind donations of materials and services can be applied as a match against the remaining cash expenses
