Miami County Park District

Grant Description

Previous Page Version

Grants to Ohio political subdivisions for environmental awareness programs that benefit local communities in eligible areas. Funding is intended to promote programming and activities that take place at parks in eligible districts. The program must be conducted in a park area owned or leased by the Miami County Park District.

The intent of the grant program is to provide “quality” environmental programming to as many residents as possible. The program shall provide opportunities for all segments of the population to visit one of the parks in the county-wide 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's 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.
