Austin Parks Foundation

Austin Parks Foundation partners with our community to enhance people’s lives by making our public parks, trails and green spaces better through volunteerism, innovative programming, advocacy and financial support. Four different grants available:

Impact Grant

The Impact Grant is intended to support large, community-initiated, physical park improvement projects, as well as master plan implementations and place-making. One grant for $100,000 is awarded annually through a highly competitive process with a grant period of 24 months.

Community Grant

As the anchor of our ACL Music Festival Grants Program, Community Grants are intended for large, community-initiated park improvement projects that fall between $5,000 to $50,000

Neighbourhood Grant

Neighborhood Grants are awarded for small-scale, community-initiated park improvement projects. Grants from $500 to $5,000 are awarded regularly throughout the year, on a rolling basis, with a grant period of six months.

Design Services

Park Design services are intended to provide design options to Adopt-A-Park groups at every scale, and are in complete coordination with the City of Austin’s Parks & Recreation Department.
