Grants to Miami County, Ohio local government agencies, school districts, and political subdivisions for environmental education projects in county parks. The purpose of this program is to offer quality environmental education to as many local residents as possible. Eligible programs provide opportunities for all segments of the population to visit one of the parks in the county park system.
The program must be conducted in a park area owned or leased by the Miami County Park District, and may extend to programs outside of the Park District boundaries to promote the Park District image in the community.
Programs outside of the Park boundaries must incorporate a visit to a park of their choice as a part of this grant program. The grant may pay for those direct expenses in the development of the program and the implementation at a park site. Special permission must be given by the Park Board for grant money to be spent on off-site education projects.
