Accessibility for Parks Grant Program

The Accessibility for Parks (AFP) program provides $10 million for parks and recreation grants to benefit children and veterans with disabilities in North Carolina. Local governments, incuding some public authorities, are eligible to apply for the matching grants. The program is administrered through the N.C. Division of Parks and Recreation and the N.C. Parks and Recreation Trust Fund.

The matching grants can be used to build accessible facilities or adapt existing facilities that meet the unique needs of children and veterans with physical and developmental disabilities. Local governments can request a maximum of $500,000 with each application and must match the grant with at least $1 of local funds for every $5 in grant funds.
