Local Government Grant Program advisory committee seeks to fill vacancies

Feb. 9, 2018

SALEM, Ore. - The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) is seeking candidates to serve on the Local Government Grant Program (LGGP) advisory committee. The two open positions are for a city representative for cities with a population less than 15,000 and for a citizen representative for the public at large.

The LGGP awards more than $5 million annually to outdoor recreation projects throughout the state. The advisory committee consists of 10 members that meet annually in June to review LGGP applications. Members typically serve four-year terms. The annual application review is a three-day meeting in Salem. Member's travel expenses are reimbursed by OPRD.

Interested candidates must fill out an interest form; contact LGGP coordinator Mark Cowan for the form.

The LGGP has awarded more than $50 million in grants to cities, counties, parks and recreation districts, ports and metros since 1999.
