Future Considerations

LWCF Administrative &

Planning Elements


Scorp cycle priorities

SCORP Cycle & Priorities

  • Extend to 10 – year planning cycle

  • 5-year SCORP update, accomplishment report

  • Status report

  • State issues driven


Funding scorp planning

Funding SCORP Planning

  • State’s should retain option to determine planning $$ levels

    • Gives states flexibility to determine level of investment in planning process

Funds not from stateside allocation

Better SCORPs cost more


Federal interagency council on outdoor recreation ficor

Federal Interagency Council on Outdoor Recreation (FICOR)

  • FICOR:

    • Advance best planning practices

    • Accept state issues/priorities in a tier up approach to developing federal priorities

    • Support development of a digitally-based US outdoor recreation inventory

    • Support/require fed agency participation w/ fed $


Technical planning assistance

Technical Planning Assistance

Federal staff experience in SCORP planning beneficial – strengthen in future

Budgetary climate does not support change now

Engage professional orgs


Outdoor recreation conservation cooperatives

Outdoor Recreation & Conservation Cooperatives

  • Federal agency participation in stateside planning

  • And, implementation

  • Some states doing this today in SCORPs, large scale landscape initiatives, other activities

  • State outreach, communication early & often


Spatial data analyses

Spatial Data & Analyses

  • Support creating GIS-based outdoor recreation data within SCORP grants

  • GIS is a powerful analytical tool

    • valuable in ORI analysis

    • gap analyses

    • investment decisions

    • stewardship review – 6(f), env review

    • landscape evaluation


Scorp content

SCORP Content

  • Encourage more integrated, comprehensive plans

    • None traditional topics – special pops, wildlife, water conservation, others

    • Integrate for broader utility, collaboration, diversity, science-based, robust outcomes

    • None outdoor rec topics defined state by state – what’s relevant

    • Greater recognition of current & changing O.R. uses, needs, trends

    • Stress value of existing LWCF sites – to fulfill today’s needs


Scorp planning options

SCORP Planning Options

  • 3-tiered approach is logical

  • State choice

    • Flexibility to choose elements within tiers


Future considerations lwcf administrative planning elements

  • Pre-Conference Survey

  • LWCF Reauthorization

  • 17 State responding

  • SCORP-related questions

  • Incorporating AGO priorities into SCORP

  • Eligible activities

  • Federal agency participation in SCORP development


Future considerations lwcf administrative planning elements

  • Incorporating AGO priorities into SCORP

  • States know priorities – State’s Plan

    • State priorities are generally developed from state-level surveys/public participation

  • Concern that fed priorities override state priorities ; or compete

  • Include federal priorities if broadly framed – i.e., health promotion, encouraging equitable access; engaging youth & families to get outdoors

  • State already incorporates fed priorities; SCORP’s should be more inclusive of fed partner’s needs

  • Do not bind states to AGO priorities, but do include in SCORP

  • All AGO initiatives within states are tied to a federal agency – who’s priority is it?

  • Unfulfilled state need far greater than any potential AGO projects

  • AGO process is not based in science/social science research – SCORP’s develop reliable data


Future considerations lwcf administrative planning elements

  • SCORP Process Improvements (Suggested by states)

  • Funding

  • Better SCORP’s will cost more

  • Small staff states - reduce costs w/ standardized survey questions

  • Eligible Planning Projects

  • Economic impact study of parks & recreational facilities

  • GIS data building


Future considerations lwcf administrative planning elements

  • States’ success involving federal agency in SCORP development

  • Mixed success; most respondents unsuccessful

    • A state does want fed involvement – they get their own $

    • Federal agencies actively engaged, others minimally

    • Fed agencies do not see direct benefit

    • State staffing loses led to less fed participation
