The City of Duluth has partnered with the Duluth Superior Area Community Foundation to provide funding for neighborhood-based parks enhancements and recreation services on Duluth's parks, recreation and trails system.
The Parks and Recreation Division has been a proud partner with over 50 community organizations over the past six years supporting positive impacts through the Duluth Parks Grant Fund. We are at the juncture where we need to reinvest these funds to maximize on internal capacities to better serve our diverse and widespread constituency.
Over the years, our division has seen disparities in parks maintenance and a growing list of deferred projects which have reached critical stages. In order to better maintain and fulfill our stewardship responsibilities across the city, we are going to phase out the Duluth Parks Fund grants after this fall grant cycle.
This grant round will reduce the amount of awards given to a total of $15,000. The maximum amount a grant applicant can receive is now $3,000.
The increasing needs are not reflected in our stagnant Parks budget. The Parks and Recreation division is going to reallocate these funds to focus on community assets such as aging playground infrastructures, failing pedestrian bridges, implement an asset management plan and support the Park Ranger program.
These areas of focus ensure that our funds and services are stretched equitably across the city for the benefit of all community members.
Letters of intent will be accepted until Monday, September 24th. Grant applications will be accepted until Monday, October 8th.
