PARC GRANT PUBLIC MEETING
Join us at 5:30pm on Monday, June 12 for a meeting to review the Community Park District's potential PARC Grant application. The Community Park District's Regular Meeting of the Board of Park Commissioners will take place immediately afterwards, at 6:30pm.
$28 million in total funding is available to units of local government, including park districts, forest preserve districts, and conservation districts in this grant cycle.
PARC funding is made available through the Rebuild Illinois capital program and was the direct result of IAPD’s advocacy efforts in 2019.
PARC grants may be used for park and recreation construction projects, including the acquisition, development, construction, reconstruction, rehabilitation, improvements, architectural planning, and installation of capital facilities. This includes, but is not limited to, buildings, structures, and land for park and recreation purposes and open spaces and natural areas.
PARC grants range from $25,000 to $2.8 million. The State may provide up to 75% of the approved projects costs. Local governments defined as disadvantaged are eligible for up to 90% in State funding assistance.
