Tonasket Park and Recreation District Awards First Grant to Tonasket Junior Baseball, Additional Grant Opportunities Available
The Tonasket Park and Recreation District awarded the first of two grants to the Tonasket Junior Baseball Association to improve playing fields for games, practices, leagues and tournaments.
“We are happy The Tonasket Junior Baseball Association has been awarded this grant.” stated Tonasket Parks and Recreation District Chair, Jordon Weddle, “They have been a fantastic part of our community for many years, and they do a great job taking care of their fields with the resources and volunteer labor that they have.”
Through the grant, playing fields within the complex will be reconstructed with high performance, durable surfaces to reduce water consumption, permit longer seasonal play and increase ease of facility maintenance. Two backstops will also be upgraded.
For 2018, the Tonasket Park and Recreation District is offering a second grant opportunity of up to $5,000 for projects submitted through their facilities grant program. Individuals and groups are encouraged to submit small-scale facility improvement projects to the Tonasket Park and Recreation District. Selected projects will maintain or enhance public lands for recreational purposes, and may take place in facilities, athletic fields, parks, and playgrounds.
The Tonasket Park and Recreation District was established to both maintain the community pool and improve other recreational facilities within the district. “We are offering a second grant opportunity for local groups,” said Weddle, “If you have a project for a park or recreational area that you would like to see improved or maintained, please send a grant application to the Tonasket Park and Recreation District.”
Grant projects may cost more than the $5,000 maximum grant award. Donations in the form of money, materials, volunteer labor, or donated equipment can be used to complete a project. There is no requirement that the projects be within the city limits of Tonasket. Projects must be located on public property within the Tonasket Park and Recreation District.
Applications must be submitted to the Tonasket Park and Recreation District no later than May 7th, 2018. Application materials are included below.
Applicants are encouraged to contact the district before submitting the application to discuss their project and to have any questions or concerns answered. We want your project to be successful. We hope that your projects and ideas become fantastic contributions to our local community!
