TPWD Awards More Than $400,000 Worth of Outreach Grants

AUSTIN, Texas — Sixteen organizations across Texas plan to introduce children around the state to camping, fishing, and conservation through the Community Outdoor Outreach Program grant program.

The CO-OP program began in 1996 as a way to help tax-exempt organizations introduce new constituents to outdoor recreation and environmental education. These grants are awarded twice yearly, with application deadlines of Oct. 1 and March 1. There is currently $800,000 available for the year, a decrease from the $1.25 million available last year.

Grant writing workshops for this summer will be announced in late spring. For more information about the workshops and the CO-OP grant program, visit the program Web page (, where a grant application can be downloaded. Or, contact Darlene Lewis at (512) 912-7145 or Dana Lagarde at (512) 912-7056.
