Partnerships for Parks offers resources to community groups working in New York City parks to strengthen their outreach, membership, and program-planning capacity through small grants; publications and website production services; trainings; and fiscal sponsorship. Partnerships for Parks also connects park groups to external resources, which help to further the group’s development and knowledge, diversify funding sources, and expand their networks.
The Partnerships for Parks Capacity Fund Grant supports community groups dedicated to parks with funding for projects to build their capacity through supporting the group’s self-awareness, ability, and sustainability.
Groups may submit ONLY ONE of the following applications per round and if successful, must wait one year to apply again:
Capacity building projects
Publication (apply to work with PfP Art Director or outside consultant)
Website (apply to work with PfP Art Director or outside consultant)
The next deadline is Thursday October 1, 2015. Applications must be received by 11:59PM.
Park groups can access other resources, training opportunities, as well as upcoming and ongoing funding opportunities outside of Partnerships for Parks as they grow and seek to diversify their funding sources and to build their capacity.
