Highland park gets $150K grant

Monday, April 11, 2022 by Tai Moses

Thanks to the largesse of the Austin Parks Foundation, Highland Neighborhood Park is getting a $150,000 Community Impact Grant to fund “specific amenities as part of the park’s overall vision plan implementation, including a pedestrian bridge, connection path, water fountain and more.” In a news release, the foundation also announces some updates to its ACL Music Festival Grants Program that “will allow for more funds to be requested, offering greater opportunities for a larger impact. The program will now consist of two grant options. Community Impact Grants are designed for large-scale, community-initiated park improvement projects from $5,000 and up. Neighborhood Grants are designed for smaller-scale projects and range from $500 to $5,000.” Grant applications for the first cycle of 2022 are being accepted until April 30. The second cycle opens in July. Find more information about APF’s grant program here.
