Small Project Grant Program
With support from our sponsors, donations, memberships and funds received from community support programs (including Smiths Reward Program and Amazon Smile), Friends of Utah State Parks initiated our Small Project Grant Program in 2015. Since then FUSP has awarded several grants for park projects, educational resources or interpretative programs.
For more information about Small Project Grants for Utah state parks, please contact an FUSP board member.
