   List of Round One Grants

   Brief project descriptions

The average grant amount is approximately $2.97 million. 
50 new parks will be created and 12 existing parks will be substantially improved or expanded.  Youth, seniors, and families determined what they wanted in their parks through extensive community based planning. 

More than 475 applications were received requesting $1.6 billion, far exceeding the $184 million available in Round One.  This clearly shows the extent of unmet community needs throughout California.
