Finding grant funding for recreation centers can be a challenge that often depends on the stage of your project. For instance, if you are starting from scratch, securing funding for land or a physical building may take precedence. If you have already completed those initial steps, then you may need grants for program development, equipment, or even personnel. Whether you are starting at the beginning or looking for specific program funding, below are some grants for recreation centers.
Food pantries might be the organizations that require the most diverse resources to function properly. We get requests from agencies to find grants for everything from actual food to gardens for growing food to new buildings to kitchen equipment. An additional layer that increases the variety of grant funding needed is that some food banks provide non-perishable food, some provide hot meals, and some provide both. Thus, while the specific needs of food pantries vary widely, their general need is consistently great. According to the USDA, 1 in 6 people in America face hunger. Below we have gathered some grants to help fill some of these great needs.
