January 2001

I. DISCUSSION: LOCAL PARK GRANTS: The Texas Recreation and Parks Account Program (TRPA) was authorized in 1993 to assist local political subdivisions of the state in providing basic public recreation facilities. TRPA revenue is generated from a portion of the state sales tax on sporting goods.

Funds available include $5,511,794 from Fiscal Year 2001 TRPA revenue. This review includes applications from 46 sponsors, requesting $17,322,833 in matching funds for all applications submitted by July 31, 2000. Based on site visits and analyses, the projects have been ranked in descending order of priority. Exhibit A contains the priority listing with funds requested by the sponsors and funds recommended by staff. Exhibit B contains a discussion of individual, eligible project proposals.

II. RECOMMENDATION: The staff recommends the Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission adopt the following motion:

"Funding for projects listed in Exhibit A in the amount of $5,511,794.00 is approved, as described for individual projects in Exhibit B."
