Grants of up to $2,500 to Knoxville, Tennessee nonprofits, schools, community groups, homeowner associations, and other organizations to improve and expand the city's recreational facilities and public parks. Priority is given to projects that are on City-owned or City-leased property, but facilities must be available to all residents on a yearly basis. Previous funding has been used for playground equipment, water fountains, benches and landscaping.
The goal of the grant program is to enhance public parks and recreational facilities, so any project that would make a place look nicer, be safer, or add a new component to an already existing place would be eligible. The project submitted must be located in an existing city park, greenway, or other public recreational area; and be someplace that is generally open to the public and used for recreation.
