Local Recreation Improvement Grant
The Division of Local Government Services has announced that Local Recreation Improvement Grant applications are due no later than 5 p.m. on January 20, 2023. The grant program was developed to fund improvements to recreational facilities; provide quality outdoor recreation space to underserved communities; and assist local units in achieving unmet recreational obligations. The grants will help cover costs associated with updating community centers, playgrounds, pools, fields, walking or bicycle trails, rail trails, multi-sport courts, and recreational facilities; one-time personnel costs directly related to improvements; project development professional services costs; equipment costs including playground and recreation facilities equipment; and environmental remediation costs required to prepare recreation sites for use.
