Grants to Massachusetts municipalities for outdoor recreational projects that benefit residents in urban areas throughout the State. Funding is intended to support the acquisition of land for recreational purposes, promote the development of new parks, and support the renovation or enhancement of existing parks. Cities and towns of all sizes are eligible to apply.
EEA seeks to further the protection of suitable conservation and recreation land within the Commonwealth, as well as making more land available for recreation in urban areas. To this end, financial assistance is available to municipalities for the acquisition of recreation land, development of new parks, or the renovation of existing parks. Please note that PARC grants can fund park designs only if included as part of a construction project, but can fund only construction work.
Applicants should give every consideration to incorporating wood into projects seeking funding from this program, and particularly, wood products grown and manufactured locally. If local wood is determined not to be appropriate for the project, grantees should be prepared to demonstrate that wood is not a suitable material or that locally grown and manufactured products are not available or cost-prohibitive (MGL Chapter 30B Section 20).
