Parks & Trails Matching Grants


The Missoula County Parks and Trails Advisory Board frequently forms partnerships with local organizations and homeowner associations to improve County parks and other public recreation areas. In these partnerships, the Park Board provides planning assistance and some funding. In turn, the local organization matches those funds and agrees to continually maintain the park.
