Neb. agency offers outdoor rec marketing grants

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) _ Nebraska communities, groups, organizations and others looking for help in promoting outdoor recreation can get some help from the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission.

The agency is offering $100,000 in marketing grants to promote outdoor recreation to spur tourism and economic development.

Public-private partnerships, non-government agencies and political subdivisions also are eligible.

While all projects, events and campaigns must promote outdoor recreation, preference is given to marketing campaigns promoting hunting, fishing and Game and Parks' public areas.

The individual grant amounts to reimburse winning events and projects will range from $2,000 to $25,000.

The application deadline is March 28. Grants will be awarded April 30.
