$73.6 Million Awarded to More Than 100 Cities and Counties for Local Parks and Recreation Upgrades

July 14, 2014
The Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) announced record-breaking awards to help cities and counties build much needed parks and/or repair existing parks and recreation facilities within their community.
 
HCD’s Housing-Related Parks Program uses voter-approved funds from the Housing and Emergency Shelter Trust Fund Act of 2006 to expand and improve the availability of parks and recreation facilities within communities. The largest share of the funding, 71 percent is allocated to communities that are both disadvantaged and park-deficient.
 
HCD expanded its awareness campaign for the Housing-Related Parks Program, and as a result, many more California cities and counties are applying and taking advantage of this useful grant program.
