The Idaho Department of Parks and Recreation (IDPR), in conjunction with the Idaho State Legislature, has a 3 – year Expanded Veterans Discount Pilot Program in an effort to sample the use of fee discounts within Idaho State Parks by a larger audience of Idaho Veterans.
The pilot program provides a waiver of park entrance and basic campsite fees to participating Idaho residents who are disabled veteran’s and whose service-related disabilities are rated at fifty (50) to ninety (90) percent permanent and total disability.
An annual lottery is used to select 300 individuals to participate in the pilot each year. The 2010 program will be effective January 1 through December 31, 2010, based on a Lottery to be held in late fall, 2009.
All qualifying veterans who are interested in participating in the 2010 Pilot Program are invited to submit their applications before October 2, 2009. Apply Now!
