The Office of Grants and Local Services (OGALS) is pleased to announce the application deadline has been extended for the Regional Park Program (RPP), and the Rural Recreation and Tourism Program (RRT).
NEW Application deadline: Thursday, January 20, 2022 before 5:00pm (moved from the original November 5, 2021 due date).
Regional Park Program
RPP will fund land acquisition and development to create, expand and improve regional parks and facilities across California. Applications must be submitted online before 5:00 pm on January 20, 2022. Please visit parks.ca.gov/rpp for more information about the program and the Application Guide. Rural Recreation and Tourism Program RRT will fund land acquisition and development to create new recreation facilities in support of economic and health-related goals in rural communities across California. Applications must be submitted online before 5:00 pm on January 20, 2022. Please visit parks.ca.gov/rrt for more information about the program and the Application Guide.
Online Application System is Open - Start Uploading Now!
Submittable, the online application system, is available for both programs. We strongly encourage you to create an account and begin entering your application now to avoid unexpected technical issues on the day of the application deadline. The portal will close at 5:00pm on Thursday, January 20, 2022; applicants must click the submit button before 5:00pm.
The system is designed so that co-workers and partners can Collaborate on an application by clicking "Invite Collaborators" at the top of the online application. Collaborators must be added before the final submit application tab is clicked - they cannot be added afterward.
Submittable video tutorials are available on each program webpage to assist applicants with setting up their account and entering applications.
Planning to submit more than one application in the same Grant Program? Follow these steps:
1. Complete one entire application at a time and click the "submit application" button at the bottom of the application. This must be done before the same person can create and be the "owner" of the next application. Alternately, if an applicant wants to work on multiple applications in the system at the same time, Step 2 below will be followed.
2. An applicant must select another person (co-worker or another partner) to start an account for each additional application and follow the steps below.
The person who starts the additional application is called an "owner" in the online Submittable system. Each additional application will need a different owner to create the new application account.
When an owner sets up an application account, the owner will be able to email a link to invite as many collaborators as needed. However, collaborators must be added before the application is submitted. Collaborate on an application by clicking “Invite Collaborators” at the top of the online application.
A collaborator can work on the application in the system but will not have the ability to click the “submit application” button.
The owner will click the "submit application" button by the Application deadline. We hope you find this online collaboration feature to be helpful for those who are teleworking, and to support online teamwork between your co-workers and partners while preparing the application. Again, we encourage you to submit applications as soon as they are ready between now and the Application deadline, as long as you have determined that your responses to the Project Selection Criteria are complete. Revisions to Project Selection Criteria will not be accepted once applications have been submitted.
