Build It Yourself Lets Play Community Construction Grants
We get a variety of Placemaking Micro-grant applications from our REALTOR® Associations to build playgrounds in their communities. Additional funding is usually always needed. I just came across another grant available from KaBOOM! to support the creation of playgrounds so that children, and their families, have a safe place to gather and play.
There is also a Toolkit available which is particularly helpful as it is designed to walk you through the process of how to create a community-build playspace. From fundraising to volunteer recruitment, this Toolkit can help you take your project from start to finish with over a decade’s worth of KaBOOM! knowledge, advice, and best practices in building playspaces.
As for the grant, Dr Pepper Snapple & KaBOOM! have teamed up to offer $15,000 grants to be used toward the purchase of playground equipment. Grantees will lead their community through a self-guided planning process, using the $15,000 grant towards the total cost of playground equipment and assembling the playground using the KaBOOM! community-build model. Grantees have up to one year to build the playground and will have the support of a remote KaBOOM! Grants Manager and an onsite Certified Playground Installer. For more information about the community build model, go to kaboom.org/toolkit.
