Request a Grant Writer

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

It was the consensus of the Board that the most equitable use of allocated funds would be for a program of community wide assistance. This type of program provides for a larger community benefit from tax dollar by assuring greater opportunities of participation in environmental education programming in the parks. 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 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.
