Louisiana Outdoors Forever pre-application period ends May 19

The pre-application window for Louisiana Outdoors Forever projects closes at midnight on May 19, 2023.

Louisiana Outdoors Forever is intended to serve as a matching source for other funding. This program was designed to help Louisiana projects be more competitive by providing additional funding or match to maximize other grant applications. These projects expand the footprint of conservation in the state, restore value habitat, provide for land management, and enhance public access.

The state’s $10 million initial investment is seed money to establish the program and gauge the need for future investment. Preference will be given to projects based how well they meet the scoring criteria but the Project Selection Board will also consider the dollars the project will bring to Louisiana.
