Realizing Park Equity: Improving How Federal Funds Reach Communities That Can Most Benefit

November 8, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

To expand access to parks nationwide, the Outdoor Recreation Legacy Partnership (ORLP) Program funds green spaces in low-income, urban communities. While the program has supported important projects throughout the country, program benefits could be more fully realized. For instance, millions of grant dollars have been left on the table in recent years. Since funding for ORLP is expected to increase in the coming years, the program can be an increasingly important resource for underserved communities.

This webinar will explore successes of the ORLP Program and illustrate opportunities to strengthen its impact. The discussion will feature a panel of park advocates and agency representatives, and share findings from our recent research.
