Recreation Mini Grants

Granville County’s parks, greenways, and recreation grant funds are used to facilitate the development and support of active and passive recreation and leisure activities for residents of all age groups. 

The objective is to make these activities available to as many, and from as broad a spectrum of residents, as possible. For that reason, Granville County provides grant funding to local government and registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations within the county that construct or install recreation facilities and amenities that are free to use and open to the public. 

Past projects funded by County mini grants include playground equipment at Jack Day Community Park (Stem), Hix Park (Oxford), Lake Rogers Park fishing piers (Creedmoor), facility improvements (South Granville High School), picnic shelter (Grassy Creek Community Center), and many, many more.  Signs are erected at project sites to inform residents that their county tax dollars helped provide the amenities.  

Local government entities and registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations within Granville County are eligible to apply for up to $25,000 in grant funds. The 2024 grant cycle closed on January 31, 2024. 

The Parks, Greenways, and Recreation Advisory Committee will review 2024 mini grant applications during their April and May committee meetings, and a recommendation for funding made to the Granville County Board of Commissioners in July.
