Program Overview
Funds for this grant program are to be allocated for projects pursuant to the Roberti-Z'berg-Harris Urban Open Space and Recreational Grant Program (Public Resources Code Chapter 3.2 commencing with Section 5620) and are to be used for:

  • High priority projects that satisfy the most urgent park and recreation needs, with emphasis on unmet needs in the most heavily populated and most economically disadvantaged areas within each jurisdiction.

  • Projects for which funding supplements--rather than supplants---local expenditures for park and recreation facilities and does not diminish a local jurisdiction's efforts to provide park and recreation services.

  • Block grants allocated on the basis of population and location in urbanized areas.

  • Need-basis grants to be awarded competitively to eligible entities in urbanized areas and in nonurbanized areas.
