After the application period has ended team of park partners scores the projects. Scoring is determined by a series of weighted criteria. Criteria include preservation and lasting legacy, interpretive and educational value, public impact, American Indian involvement, enhancement of recreational opportunities, and uniqueness. Final determination for project funding is made by the Midwest Regional Director with recommendations from the Superintendent of the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail.

National Park Service
Since 1995, Congress has legislated funds to the NPS under the CCSP. These funds are intended to increase participation by qualified partners in the preservation and improvement of National Park Service natural, cultural, and recreational resources; in all authorized Service programs and activities; and on national trails. The NPS and partners work together on projects with mutually beneficial, shared outcomes. The matching fund program requires a minimum 100% cost share from non-federal sources. Thanks to the investment of CCSP funds, the NPS and many state, local, tribal and not-for-profit agencies have built hundreds of miles of trails, educated thousands of children about their natural and cultural heritage, and restored acres of historic landscapes.
