Recreation Resources Review Committee (RRRC)


The RRRC is an advisory committee of the State Planning Council established to evaluate, prioritize and recommend funding for recreation grant projects for the Director of the Department of Environmental Management. The membership is structured to provide both professional expertise and diverse interests to accurately and fairly evaluate the variety of project proposals submitted for funding.

The RRRC consists of at least six but not more than twelve experts in outdoor recreation, natural resource management, and conservation of open space, selected by the State Planning Council with the objective of providing balanced representation of state, municipal, public, and private constituencies. Permanently represented on the RRRC are the Governor’s Office, DEM (the State Liaison Office to the National Park Service), and the Division of Planning. The State Planning Council appoints committee members for terms of up to three years. The following list identifies organizations that are typically asked to designate a representative(s) to the RRRC.
