Erie County health assessments continue to show a decline in physical activity and an increase in preventable illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes.  Investment in parks, fields, and trails can encourage healthy lifestyles, move towards equitable distribution of park opportunities, and even attract athletic competitions which enhance local tourism.  Additionally, an investment in parks can help rejuvinate neighborhoods and Main Streets throughout Erie County.

A maximum of $25,000 per application; overall $150,000 per grant cycle.
