The bill establishes an outdoor equity board (board) in the division
of parks and wildlife. The board is responsible for the governance of the
outdoor equity grant program (grant program), which is created in the bill.
The purpose of the outdoor equity grant program is to increase access and
opportunity for underserved youth and their families to experience

Colorado's open spaces, state parks, public lands, and other outdoor areas.
The bill specifies that the board may award grants to applicants
that will directly utilize the grant to engage eligible youth and their
families by reducing barriers to the Colorado outdoors, creating pathways
for formal or informal conservation of the Colorado outdoors, or offering
environmental and Colorado outdoor-based educational opportunities.
The bill funds the grant program through a redistribution of lottery
money that is earmarked for the general fund.
