Grants of up to $50,000 to California nonprofit organizations in eligible locations to enhance local parks and park facilities. Support is given to capital improvement projects that reflect the needs of the local community. This grant program is intended to help community groups initiate, organize, plan, and implement a project in partnership with Conejo Recreation & Park District. Capital improvement projects must be constructed on District property.

These applications are for requests that will address easily identifiable park and recreational needs such as adding park furnishings, addressing maintenance issues, and purchasing or enhancing recreational equipment. The following projects are examples that can be accomplished through this program; however, other projects can also be submitted.
  1. Enhancing Sports Fields: Refurbishment of fields such as turf, irrigation, and lighting improvements. 
  2. Adding Permanent Improvements: Build or enhance a physical improvement to a park or facility, such as an installation of a scoreboard, restroom construction, building additional fields, batting cages, etc. These types of projects encourage partnerships between the District and sports organizations in the community.
  3. Enhance a Park Project: Creates opportunities for all community members to organize a project that makes a change or improvement in a CRPD park or facility. The projects can include, but are not limited to, shade structures, trail maintenance, installation of park benches, etc.

There are two categories for requests:

  • Non-Matching: This will allow organizations that do not have the capacity to match District funds to participate in the program.
  • Double Matching (Double Matching is for 2021-2022 only)
