Colorado Parks and Wildlife issues a Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP) every five years. The current plan, issued in 2014, covers Colorado recreation planning, funding, and grants for 2014-2018. According to the Colorado Parks & Wildlife website,
Every five years, each state updates their SCORP plan to remain eligible for stateside LWCF dollars, which are administered by the National Park Service (NPS). The Colorado State Trails Program, within Colorado Parks and Wildlife, is charged with distributing these grants to projects that align with SCORP priorities, particularly local and regional trail projects.
In our library you can view previous Colorado SCORPs back to the 1960s, as well as other Colorado recreation plans such as the Colorado State Parks Five-Year Strategic Plan, 2005-2009. The 2003 and 2008 SCORPs are available online; the others can be checked out from our library.
