With a new year upon us, it’s time plan for spring and summer recreation projects in your area. The Garrison Diversion Conservancy District (Garrison Diversion) dedicates two-tenths, or 20 percent, of its one-mill levy to the Matching Recreation Grant Program and is committed to assisting qualifying organizations with a variety of projects. Twice a year,
Garrison Diversion’s Recreation Committee meets to disburse funds to project applicants and is currently accepting applications until April 1 for the spring meeting.

Grants may be requested for new recreation facilities or enhancement or expansion of existing facilities. Political  subdivisions located within the 28-county district are eligible to apply for the program.

For years, Garrison Diversion has provided funds to support local recreation projects in communities across the state. Big or small, all eligible projects are invited to apply for grant funding. To date, nearly $5 million has been awarded to projects within the district.

For more information and to obtain an application for the Garrison Diversion Matching Recreation Grant Program, visit the Garrison Diversion website at and look under “Recreation Programs.”
