Dear Gulch Community,

We are proud to report we have been awarded $19,992 from the Outdoor Equity Fund of the State of New Mexico! This particular grant is to help expand our school partnerships and youth programming focused on high schoolers in Gallup, Santa Fe and Albuquerque.

SANTA FE, N.M. – The New Mexico Outdoor Recreation Division (ORD), a division of the New Mexico Economic Development Department (EDD), announced the award recipients of the Outdoor Equity Fund (OEF) for the 2021 (fiscal year 2022) grant cycle.

The first-of-its-kind Outdoor Equity Fund was created to increase equitable access to the outdoors for all youth. The grant supports programming that provides outdoor experiences which foster stewardship and respect for New Mexico’s land, water, and cultural heritage.

“Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham has recognized that New Mexico’s outdoor recreation areas are an important asset for creating jobs and boosting public health,” Economic Development Department Cabinet Secretary Alicia J. Keyes said. “The second round of grants from the innovative Outdoor Equity Fund will help organizations throughout the state with outdoor programming and education.”
