Financing Parkland Acquisition
Two primary grant programs are available to local governments on an annual funding cycle:
To apply for these grants, a community must have an approved, five-year recreation plan on file with Grants Management of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR). The DNR has guidance to assist communities in developing these plans, Guidelines for the Development of Community Park, Recreation, Open Space and Greenways Plans. SEMCOG is the Area-Wide Recreation and Planning Clearinghouse for Southeast Michigan. As such, updated copies of recreation plans should also be submitted to SEMCOG.
