Grant Applications

Park Committee met with T.J. Davis and Butch Loveless from KC Parks and Recreation to discuss County Grant options available to secure development of the park. General consensus was to apply for two different grant options:

  • Youth Sports Facilities Grant—generally considered a long shot, as much larger and more active sports programs are normally the recipients.
  • Association Development and Operations Partnerships (ADOP)—Brand new program just being released, enabling the county to use an outside group’s passion to create a partnership to accomplish the building of a park or facility within the KC Park System. It is a long term, formal agreement allowing the KC as landowner to step aside and allow the group who has received the grant to develop the park.
