Capacity Fund Grants
The Partnerships for Parks Capacity Fund Grant supports community groups dedicated to parks with funding for projects to build their capacity. Formed through our work with community groups over many years, we see capacity as having three inter-related components for groups: self-awareness, ability, and sustainability.
There are three grant cycles per year. 2014 deadlines are February 1, June 1, and October 1. Applications must be received by 6pm.
The Catalyst Grant is intended to help park groups engage park users by organizing recreation, education, beautification, arts, and waterfront activities in Partnerships for Parks Catalyst sites. For more information on the Catalyst program, click here.
Currently, there are no Catalyst Grants available. Please check back for Catalyst site-specific grant deadlines.
Resources for Park Groups
Park groups can access other resources and funding opportunities outside of Partnerships for Parks as they grow and seek to diversify their funding sources. Please visit this page to view upcoming and ongoing grant opportunities.
