JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Missouri state parks officials have released application forms for federal grants to pay for outdoor recreation projects.

Local governments and school districts are eligible for grants to develop or renovate outdoor facilities or buy land for new parks. The grants require a 55 percent local match. Missouri officials estimate that $600,000 will be available this year.

The federal money comes from the Land and Water Conservation Fund and administered by the National Park Service. Applications must be submitted by June 11.
