Recreation Advisory Committee Announces 2017-2018 Grant Cycle

Oxford, NC– The Granville County Recreation Advisory Committee will begin its 2017-2018 grant cycle on July 1. The cycle will run until September 29, 2017 with a 5 pm deadline. Granville County’s Parks and Recreation Programming Funds are used to facilitate the development and support of active and passive recreation and leisure activities for Granville County residents.  The objective is to make these activities available to as many residents, and from as broad a spectrum of residents, as possible.  Recreation programming should seek to serve all age groups.  The Granville County Recreation Advisory Committee bylaws prohibit discrimination in the use of funds.


Applicants must be a government entity or non-profit organization. Applicants do not have to be a registered 501c-3, but it is encouraged. Municipal governments that receive an allocation based on population from Granville County are allowed to apply for more funds through this grant program.


The Granville County Recreation Advisory Committee has determined geographic and recreational funding priorities for the 2017-2018 fiscal year based on documented demand through recreation surveys and public input at Recreation Advisory Committee meetings, as well as a survey of current parks and recreation inventory. The funding priorities for the committee are listed below. While the committee intends to prioritize certain locations and recreational amenities in order to achieve strategic goals in the county, all locations and projects that meet grant guidelines will be considered. Funding priorities will most likely change from year to year based on need.

Geographic priorities are: areas outside of large municipal limits and areas not in close proximity to existing recreational facilities, especially those of like kind (for example, the committee is less likely to fund a new baseball field if it is in close proximity to another baseball field).


Recreational priorities are: walking trails, playgrounds, ADA and inclusive recreation equipment and recreation for youth and adults of varying needs, dog parks, basketball, bicycle trails, picnic shelters and tables, frisbee/disc golf, pickleball, activities that do not require a membership fee, and open park space for family friendly activities/passive recreation.


The 2017-2018 grant application period runs July 1, 2017-September 29, 2017. All applications must be submitted by September 29th by 5 pm. The application is available on or by hard copy if you stop by the Granville County Manager’s Office.  Applications must be submitted by email to, or in person/by mail to the County Manager’s Office. Grant information sessions will be held throughout the cycle. Visit the website for more information on those sessions.
