Applications Available for Parks and Rec Challenge Grants

Posted: 08/07/2012
The City of Knoxville's Parks and Recreation Department is accepting applications for its 2012-13 Challenge Grant Program, which offers grants to nonprofit projects associated with public parks or recreation facilities within the City limits.

A total of $25,000 is available this year to community groups, homeowner associations, schools, Scout troops and other organizations.

The City will reimburse 50 percent of the cost of a single project, up to $2,500.

Previously, the grants have been used for playground equipment, water fountains, benches and landscaping.

Applications and grant parameters are available at www.knoxvilletn.gov/recreation or at 865-215-2017.

The deadline for applications is Sept. 17.
