InForum News Brief FSA

FARGO — The Fargo Park District Foundation is accepting applications for its Matching Grant Program, which provides a funding opportunity for associations, organizations, clubs or individuals to partner on projects in Fargo Park District facilities or parks.

The program's purpose is to advance recreational opportunities in Fargo. The Matching Grant Program provides a dollar-for-dollar match. The maximum dollar amount matched is $15,000 and the minimum project size is $2,500. The project sponsor must certify that they have the necessary funds for their share of the total estimated project's cost. Funds available for the 2021 grant cycle are $100,000.

Projects that receive the greatest consideration fit into the Fargo Park District’s strategic plan, mission and vision as well as serve a wide variety of people and can be used throughout the year. Projects should also have a developmental plan approved or reviewed by Fargo Park District. Also receiving greatest consideration are projects that are on Park District property and projects with limited operational maintenance costs over an extended time period.

Applications must be submitted by 5 p.m. Jan. 1, 2021. Prior to submission and deadline, Foundation Director Brian Arett must be contacted at 701-356-1420 to conduct an initial project review to make sure the project meets minimum specifications.
