The Outdoor Recreation Roundtable has circulated a list of projects that are receiving federal funding through the American Rescue Plan. The projects include expansion of the town landing pier in Tenants Harbor, Maine, trail infrastructure improvements in Delaware, and an RV park in Ohio, ORR said in a statement yesterday.

The funds were set aside in an Economic Development Administration program to aid travel, tourism and outdoor recreation. It is the first time outdoor recreation has been identified as a core EDA funding priority.

“Outdoor recreation supports jobs, improves health and increases economic resiliency in rural and, particularly, gateway communities while also contributing greatly to land and water conservation,” said ORR president Jessica Turner. “We are thrilled to see recipients of this funding from all across the country launch transformative projects that will positively impact their communities and bolster our national outdoor recreation economy.”

The list of funded projects can be found here.
