The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) Recreation Grants program is hosting a series of public input meetings to discuss and assess evaluation criteria for awarding funds for Local Park Grants. Public feedback during upcoming open meetings will assist TPWD in keeping the evaluation criteria relevant for future grant applicants.
The Local Park Grants program consists of five individual programs that assist local units of government with the acquisition and/or development of public recreation areas and facilities throughout the state. The program provides 50 percent matching grants on a reimbursement basis to eligible applicants. All grant assisted sites must be dedicated as parkland in perpetuity, properly maintained and open to the public.
