NH Division of Parks and RecreationLand and Water Conservation Fund Grant$25,000 - $200,000on holdProjects must be in direct support of public outdoor recreational uses of related properties and/or facilities. Eligible project types are as followshttps://www.nhstateparks.org/about-us/community-recreation/land-and-water-conservation-fund-grant.aspxThis is the funding that Monroe has applied for. This funding mainly supports the development of outdoor recreation use/facilities that are open to the general public. There has to be a long-term public benefit beyond the children in attendance at the school. It has to be open to the public although it can be closed to the public during school hours. Being open to the public is long term 50 years. Many schools run into issues with this. Bethlehem may not compete well in this considering that the community has a playground, pool and several athletic courts. If awarded the project will have a developed boundary that will be consider the outdoor recreation boundary and the expansion of future schools needs in the way of parking, building space etc. can not go into that area without a process.Not recommended for this situation further discussion required.
