State of Arizona Programs:

Arizona Economic Recovery Center: The Arizona Economic Recovery Center (AZERC) aims to enable more qualified Arizona cities, towns, counties, tribal communities, and nonprofits to win and implement competitive federal, state, municipal, or foundation grants.

Arizona State Parks & Trails Grants: Arizona State Parks and Trails works with federal, state, county and municipal governments, as well as tribes, clubs and non-profits to help fund outdoor recreation educational programs, projects that build recreational motorized and non-motorized trails, trail facilities, and playgrounds. These grants can also be used to develop ball fields, ramadas, picnic tables, grills, and tennis and basketball courts to name a few. Funds can also be used to increase outdoor recreational opportunities for those with disabilities. If your agency is considering building accessible trails, outdoor recreation facilities and/or educational-related projects, our grant programs will help you reach that goal.
