LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Twenty-one communities across Michigan will receive state grants for projects designed to boost public access to quality outdoor recreation.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources says $877,500 will be divided among the winners. The department received 60 applications.

The money comes from sale of the Recreation Passport, which is required for vehicle entry at Michigan state parks and recreation areas.

Applicants sought funding for projects such as playground development and renovation, trail and walkway development, park and picnic area improvements and improved access for people with disabilities.

Most of the grants totaled $45,000, although some were for less.

A list of winners is available on the DNR website at www.michigan.gov/dnr-grants (click on Recreation Passport Grants).
