Applicants (state agencies, local governments, organizations, or individuals) must submit their application to an advisory committee who will make a suggestion to the chief, who will make a final decision.
This bill also creates the Outdoor Learning Grant Program in the Department of Natural Resources that will award grants to school districts for outdoor learning programs for 5-6th graders.
