Request a Grant Writer

Grants to North Carolina local government agencies for park and recreational projects that benefit the general public. Funding is intended to acquire, develop, and improve outdoor public facilities. Grants may also be used to protect and preserve scenic and natural resources or to renovate older park facilities. A project must be located on a single site, and the applicant must have legal control of the park property where PARTF facilities will be located.

Park areas and facilities must be open and accessible to the public with no restrictions such as membership. Property acquired with PARTF assistance must be dedicated forever for public recreational use. Facilities built or renovated with a PARTF grant are to be used for public recreation for at least 25 years. These facilities are not eligible for additional PARTF assistance during this time.
