REQUIRED EXPLANATION OF REQUEST
  The Ohio Department of Natural Resources respectfully requests Controlling Board approval to release capital funds in the amount of $2,772,195 from fund 7031, ALI C725E1 (Local Parks Projects Statewide), in FY18, for Round 24 of the Local Parks Projects Statewide NatureWorks grant program.  
  The NatureWorks grant program is established in Section 1557.06 of the Ohio Revised Code. HB 790, the enabling legislation for the NatureWorks Local outdoor recreation grant program requires available funding to be divided between Ohio's 88 counties using a legislatively mandated per capita formula.

This year local governments in 74 Ohio counties submitted a total of 147 applications requesting a total of $5,621,957 in grant funding. All were thoroughly evaluated, and 92 projects were awarded a total of $2,772,195. A list of Round 24 awarded projects, by county, is attached.

Natureworks allows for carryover of a county's unused funds.   Round 24 awards to some counties were supplemented by carryover dollars.
