Sources of Funding for Outdoor Education.
The financing of outdoor education should be the responsibility of the school district according to the same policies that pertain to other emphases in the curriculum. However, sources of funding other than local school tax funds are state funds, Federal funds, and private funds. State funds that might be used for outdoor education programs include funds for inservice education of teachers, urban education, vocational education, and education of the handicapped. Federal financial assistance is available from sources which include the Environmental Education Act, Legacy of Parks Program, Land and Water Conservation Fund, and Elementary and Secondary Education Act. Numerous private agencies, organizations, and foundations have funds available for support of environmental and outdoor programs. In the document, narrative information and a chart of funding sources describe the types of funds, their purposes, who may apply, and how to receive further information; address lists of state education departments, U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development regional offices, Bureau of Outdoor Recreation regional offices, U.S. Office of Education regional offices, and state agencies for surplus property are appended.
