Grants to connect people to the outdoors

No child left inside

Recent and emerging research indicates that students are increasingly disconnected from nature.

The No Child Left Inside grant program aims to support and increase efforts to expand programming that connects youth to the outdoors by providing grants for outdoor environmental, ecological and other natural-resource-based education and recreation programs.

Angler & hunter grants

Getting more people into the outdoors is crucial for the future stewardship of Minnesota's natural resources.

The angler and hunter recruitment and retention grant program works to get more people to hunt or fish through their participation or commitment to these activities. At a minimum, people leave with positive experiences and opinions toward hunting and fishing.

Priority will be given to programs for new and diverse audiences and those with an ongoing impact rather than one-time events.
