The Michigan Municipal League and the Michigan Recreation and Park Association (mParks) have partnered together to help you be ready to apply for the Michigan SPARK grant!
In October, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) launched a $65 million Michigan SPARK grant program to help local communities create, renovate, or redevelop public opportunities for residents and visitors. Offered in three rounds between now and summer 2023, these grants will “support projects that provide safe, accessible, public recreation facilities and spaces to improve people’s health, introduce new recreation experiences, build on existing park infrastructure and make it easier for people to enjoy both indoor and outdoor recreation.”
Join MML, mParks, and the DNR as they overview the program and take a deeper dive into the scoring system and data mapping within this exciting grant opportunity. For additional information, follow the Michigan Spark Grants webpage. The DNR has provided a thorough program overview, details on scoring criteria, webinar specifics, key dates (including the Dec. 19 application deadline), updated FAQs and other information to keep you on track.
