Governor Torres announces $2 million from LWCF for outdoor recreation projects

Governor Ralph DLG. Torres announced on Friday that the U.S. Department of the Interior Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) State and Local Assistance Program has apportioned $2,010,009 for the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI) for priority outdoor recreation projects benefiting the community.

The purposes of the LWCF Act are to support the acquisition or development of outdoor recreation areas and facilities needed to support individual active participation in such recreation, and to promote the health and vitality of Americans.

“I am grateful for this support from the U.S. Department of the Interior and for their partnership and collaboration, as this funding will greatly assist the CNMI in carrying out various conservation efforts through community and outdoor recreation projects that will benefit our islands,” said Governor Torres.
