Playground Grants

What are Grants for Playgrounds?

Grants are money given for specific projects such as playgrounds. These grants can come from many sources, including:

  • National Grants
    This form of financing is available to playgrounds across the country.
  • Corporate Grants
    Some businesses support communities by offering money for playground equipment. These are private grants.
  • Government Grants
    Government agencies offer to fund many community and school projects, including playgrounds.
  • Regional Grants
    Your county, municipality or other local government may have programs and grants in place to encourage community development or programs for children. In some cases, this funding can be used for playgrounds.

Tips for Getting Funding for Playground Equipment

  • Start early.
    Start seeking funding as soon as you start planning. Applying for grants can take time.
  • Apply for every grant for which you are eligible.
    Continue to apply, especially since you may need to combine funding resources to cover the whole cost of your playground.
  • Write the best applications possible.
    Lots of organizations compete for grants, so always work with the strongest writer you have and follow the instructions on grant applications very closely.
