Timeframe for Applications
The Trust is not currently accepting applications for this funding opportunity.
Beaufort and Halifax counties
Organizations in Halifax and Beaufort counties are working to promote greater access to recreational resources for residents with low incomes and groups that have been historically marginalized. To advance these efforts, the Trust is interested in supporting master recreation planning and built environment opportunities that promote equity in Beaufort County. We are also interested in promoting the coordination of countywide recreation activities in Halifax County. Competitive applications will directly engage the communities that disproportionately suffer from a lack of recreation assets.
