Grants to Georgia state agencies and county governments for projects that enhance and develop parks and recreational areas. Funding is intended to create or revitalize parks and other outdoor recreational spaces, with the goal of promoting economic development and encouraging people to connect or re-connect with the outdoors.
Priority will be given to projects that:
For the purposes of this competition, underserved communities are those with (1) no existing parks; (2) some existing parks but not enough to support the size of the population of the service area or otherwise able to satisfy existing recreational demand; or (3) some existing parks (potentially even an adequate number of parks) that are so deteriorated/obsolete or underdeveloped that a major redevelopment or rehabilitation is necessary to increase the number of people who could be served in a way that would be equivalent to a new park.
