The Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP) is updated every five years and serves as a guide for all public outdoor recreation in urban and rural neighborhoods, cities, and regions for a given state. This plan attempts to bring together the wants and needs of the recreation users and providers into a single comprehensive document.
The SCORP update is also an eligibility requirement for funding from the Land and Water Conservation Fund. The LWCF provides matching grants to states and local governments for the acquisition and development of public outdoor recreation areas and facilities.
Alaska Trails was the project manager for the 2023-2027 SCORP update, assisting Alaska State Parks with the production of the document and public outreach.
