Interested applicants may now submit pre-applications for grant or loan funding through the Georgia Outdoor Stewardship Program (GOSP).

The Georgia Outdoor Stewardship Program is a grant and loan program administered by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and authorized by The Georgia Outdoor Stewardship Act. Program funds will be dispersed for the purpose of providing stewardship to state parks; state lands and wildlife management areas; to support local parks and trails; and to protect critical conservation lands. Eligible applicants include qualified local governments (as determined by the Department of Community Affairs), constituted recreation authorities, state agencies, and nongovernmental entities with a core mission of conservation.

Pre-applications will be accepted August 1 - October 16, 2020 for Conserve Georgia grants and loans through the Georgia Outdoor Stewardship Program.
