Parks and green space support public health, workforce development, local economies, the environment, and community cohesion. And yet, historic disinvestment has left many low-income communities and communities of color without quality parks and recreation opportunities. Federal and state park funding programs that prioritize investments in underserved communities contribute to closing the equity gap.

This Hub highlights select federal and state funding programs that can be particularly effective at funding parks and green infrastructure in low-income communities. It is not intended to be a comprehensive source of funding opportunities, but a starting point with examples, links to additional information, and case studies.
We invite you to help us make this Hub stronger by sharing your experiences applying for, and implementing programs with these funding sources.
