Sustainable Recreation and Tourism Initiative

Welcome to "Projects and Funding"

Project Description: “Project Prioritization and Implementation Plan” is the official name of Track 4 of the “Sustainable Recreation and Tourism Initiative”. The ESSRP will collaborate with recreation stakeholders to identify projects eligible for funding via “out-of-region” financial opportunities. The “Sustainable Recreation and Tourism Initiative” will then provide technical assistance for the development of identified projects for their funding applications. MLTPA is pleased to provide this web page in support of the Eastern Sierra Sustainable Recreation Partnership (ESSRP) and the "Sustainable Recreation and Tourism Initiative."

COVID-19 Update: In person meetings are no longer safe as the pandemic has profoundly effected the gateway communities and counties of the Eastern Sierra, as well as recreation activities and our visitor audience. Project ideas for the “Project Prioritization and Implementation Plan” are being developed by recreation stakeholders through the "Community Projects" webpage and two other tracks of the Sustainable Recreation and Tourism Initiative, "Climate Adaptation & Resilience", and "Visitor Audience". The heavy lifting for the “Project Prioritization and Implementation Plan” will get underway in 2021, so please check back in with this page for complete and timely information and project updates. Many thanks to the Eastern Sierra's unprecedented open-access broadband network capacity via Digital 395.
