The Legislative-Citizens Commission on Minnesota Resources (LCCMR) is responsible for recommending how the Environment & Natural Resources Trust Fund (ENRTF) should be spent. The ENRTF has been an important source of funding for parks and trails projects over the years. During the last three cycles, LCCMR has recommended funding for the Outdoor Recreation, Local Trail Connection and Scenic & Natural Areas grant programs. It has also recommended grants for parks and trails projects for several of our GMPT members.
The LCCMR is now undergoing strategic planning about how it should invest its funds in the future and wants to hear from Minnesotans about their top priorities. You can participate by filling out this survey: https://tinyurl.com/ENRTFsurvey.
