Park Enhancement Grant Program

 

Park Enhancement Grant Program FY 2013

The Arlington County Park and Recreation Commission regrets to report that the Park Enhancement Grant (PEG) program has been temporarily suspended, as funds were not included in the Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 budget, approved by the County Board on April 20, 2013. This funding cut for the upcoming year does not impact projects that were approved for FY2013. Work on those projects has already begun.

The Commission is committed to the PEG Program and remains hopeful it will be reinstated in next year's budget. We appreciate all the past efforts by communities who have participated in this valuable program and we look forward to offering these grants again in the future.

Program Purpose

  • Enables Arlington citizens to initiate small capital improvement and beautification projects for Arlington's parks and recreation facilities in their neighborhoods;
  • Encourages community support for public parks; and
  • Streamlines these improvements to be completed without going through the normal County budget process.

Please contact Bethany Heim, Staff Coordinator, at 703-228-4825 if you have any questions regarding the program.
