District Revenue Generation Targets
As part of the Department’s overall revenue generation activities, District Revenue Targets have been created to encourage State Parks Districts to maximize mission-consistent revenues. Districts that exceed their annual revenue targets will retain a portion of that increased revenue. Annual revenue targets were developed based on previous year revenue capabilities. Once Districts meet their annual revenue targets, a portion of the additional revenues (revenue earned above the target amount) will be allocated back to that State Parks District. The remainder of the additional revenues generated will be allocated to support the entire State Park System. The ultimate goal of revenue generation at the District level is to provide adequate funding for core services in the state park units. It is not intended to fund system expansion, acquisitions, or value-added programs.
