National Recreation And Parks Association Grants Available

September 14, 2009 08:00 PM

Create Opportunities for Injured Service Members to Live Physically Active Lives

Obtain Funding Through NRPA-US Paralympics Grants
NRPA and United States Paralympics support local communities that enhance and grow their recreation, sport, and physical activity programming for injured military personnel through grants. Public park and recreation agencies are encouraged to apply for grants between $5,000 and $25,000. 

The grant money can be used for multiple things, including:

·       Equipment for adaptive programs (e.g., hand cycles)

·       Training and education of staff/program leaders

·       Program enhancements

·       ADA compliance for enhancing recreation experiences

·       Subsidizing program fees

·       And more!

Whether you are an agency with an established program, wish to create or expand your program, or already provide daily physical activity programming for injured military personnel, we invite you to apply for a grant. The application will be available through Friday, September 18, 2009.

Create physical activity opportunities for injured service members and build awareness of inclusion resources in your community.  Apply for an equipment, training, and program development grant today!

For more information on the grant program or application process, contact Heidi Melancon at 800.626.NRPA (6772). This is just one of the resources available to you through NRPA and US Paralympics.  Visit our website to learn more!
