Grants to Duluth, Minnesota community groups to enhance the social and physical aspects of parks within the City. A Letter of Intent is due by March 19. Projects should involve both volunteer and financial efforts. Qualifying projects take place primarily or entirely within a recognized unit of the city's parks, recreation, and trails system.

Projects support the mission of the Duluth's Parks and Recreation Division to fulfill the essential recreational, educational, cultural, and environmental needs that create a dynamic community.

Priority is given to projects that support one or more of the following key elements of the Parks and Recreation Master Plan:

- Improve the quality of existing parks; especially neighborhood parks;
- Expand the use of City parks and recreation areas;
- Focus on connecting the community through trails and bikeways;
- Have fewer, but higher quality, recreation buildings;
- Enhance stewardship of natural resources;
- Expand partnerships with schools for community recreation and gathering; and
- Increase the use and recognition of volunteers and volunteer groups.

Grant awards are not intended to provide permanent support for any purpose. Organizations must have the financial potential to sustain a program after funding by the Community Parks and Recreation Program ends.
