I. Discussion: The Texas Recreation and Parks Account Program (TRPA) is a dedication of a portion of the state sales tax on sporting goods, effective September 1, 1993. This program provides matching fund assistance to local governments for outdoor and indoor recreation.

TRPA funds available for indoor projects include $3,325,000 from Fiscal Year 2002 revenue.

This review includes applications from 22 sponsors requesting $13,582,476 in matching funds for all applications submitted by July 31, 2001. Projects have been analyzed by staff and are 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: Staff recommends the Parks and Wildlife Commission adopt the following motion:

“Funding for projects listed in Exhibit A in the amount of $3,325,000.00 is approved, as described for individual projects in Exhibit B.”
