Montana Accessible Playgrounds Grant Program Now Accepting Applications

(Helena, MT) – Montana State Parks (stateparks.mt.gov) is now accepting applications for the Montana Accessible Playgrounds Grant Program. Applications will be accepted through Wednesday, January 17, 2018.

Many playgrounds throughout the state are not accessible or usable by children with disabilities and most Montana communities lack the funding needed to develop accessible playgrounds. The Montana Accessible Playgrounds Grant Program will help municipalities and school districts secure additional grant funding to develop accessible playgrounds where children of all abilities can learn, play and grow.

Montana State Parks administers the Accessible Playgrounds Grant Program with $100,000 appropriated by the Montana Legislature during the 2017 session. Grant funds must be matched at a rate of 1 to 1 minimum, with $1 in state funds to $1 or more in other grant funds. A grant award will not exceed $10,000.

To view or download the Montana Accessible Playgrounds Grant application, guidelines and scoring criteria, visit: stateparks.mt.gov and click on the “Recreation Activities & Grants” tab in the righthand navigation.

Or by direct link here: http://stateparks.mt.gov/recreation/default.html.

Please, mail completed grant applications to: Tom Reilly, Montana State Parks, 1420 E. 6th Avenue, P.O. Box 200701, Helena, MT 59620. Applications must be POSTMARKED by January 17, 2018. Late applications will not be considered.
