Heritage Enhancement Grants to Local Outdoors Clubs

The Heritage Enhancement Grants to Local Outdoors Clubs program provided money to local outdoors clubs for habitat improvement projects on state wildlife management areas. The grant program originated as a one-time appropriation in the Environment and Natural Resources Finance Omnibus Bill passed by the 2001 legislature. In 2003 the program became a permanent part of the Division’s budget. Funding was from the Heritage Enhancement Fund, which includes revenues from a portion of the sales tax generated by Minnesota State Lottery sales. The last grants were funded in 2010, with these grants closing in June, 2012. The program ended at that point due to lack of staff to run the program.
