timeline for the second cycle has not been announced. The maximum grant amount is 8.5 million and the minimum grant amount is 200,000.

The Proposition 68 park grants and projects will be managed by the California Department of Parks and Recreation (DPR).

All projects must have a recreational feature for public use. All projects awarded a grant must be completed by 2022. The County has applied for Proposition 68 grant funds in the amount of 5,545,236 pending the submittal of a Board Resolution and Applicant Capacity section of the Grant. The County has determined that Statewide Park Program (Proposition 68) funding can be used to help increase accessibility and recreational opportunities available in the San Benito County River Parkway Focus Area.

FOREWORD

Tagged Passions:program

Since 1965, statewide grants administered by OGALS created and improved over 7,400 parks. We look forward to continuing this legacy with grantees to improve the quality of life for communities throughout California.

Parks are unique places where children can play, families and friends bond, people exercise, seniors socialize, youth are mentored, cultures are celebrated, and everyone connects with nature. For these reasons and more, vibrant parks funded by this program will create humane and healthier communities. Building successful parks in underserved communities is a work of art. SPP embraces meaningful engagement with local residents where park designs represent each community s unique recreation needs and creativity.
Tagged Passions:grant, arts, bond, seniors, program, parks, youth, and recreation

SPP is the largest park related grant program in California s history and possibly U.S. history, with over 1 billion in funding between the 2018 Prop. 68 and 2006 Prop. 84 Bond Acts. To record the legacy of this program, before and after site photos will be featured at parksforcalifornia.org. Thank you for your interest.
