"This money will help communities further the overall goal of leaving no child inside," said IDNR Director Marc Miller. "These projects will offer a wide variety of activities for everyone to enjoy the outdoors."This $16.9 million combined with the grantees' minimum 50 percent share will result in more than $33.8 million of local acquisition and development projects to enhance the quality of life in Illinois. The amount awarded each year for the OSLAD program is based on the condition of the housing market, because the grants are funded through a percentage of the real estate transfer tax.
