BG Parks and Rec seeks grant applications

The Bowling Green Parks and Recreation Department is now accepting applications for support program
The Parks and Recreation Board previously voted to include up to $1,000 in grant funds in the 2015 budget
to provide support for community groups which offer unique leisure services and recreation activities
which are beyond the scope of the city’s programs.
To qualify, programs should meet the following guidelines:
•    The program must provide an opportunity/experience beyond the scope of the department’s programs.

•    Fundraising by a non-profit may be permitted in city parks upon prior recommendation by the Parks
and Recreation Director and approval by the Municipal Administrator or their designee. Fundraising
inside a rented building is also permitted if the event does not involve soliciting funds from other
park visitors.
•    Groups over 150 people must follow the Large Group Use Policy.
