Davie County Recreation and Parks (DCRP) is accepting community recreation grant applications.

Grants focus on supplemental funding for qualified agencies in Davie interested in partnering with DCRP to carry out its mission and vision through the promotion of recreational fitness, health, wellness and quality of life initiatives.

“It is the intent of this grant to be a financial assistance program for capital improvements and community-based program activities that increase recreational opportunities for the communities served and shall not be a designated donation or sponsorship opportunity,” said Paul Moore, recreation director.

The mission of DCRP is to enrich the quality of life in Davie County by offering exceptional recreational experiences through a diverse system of programs, events, parks and cultural resources. Eligibility requirements, application standards and the grant application will be posted and available online only through the DCRP website. Only complete grant applications submitted online are reviewed. Access to grant policy and application may be found at:

Signed applications must be received online no later than Feb. 10. Applications will be evaluated in a three-phase process including recreation and parks team. county attorney, rec advisory board, and county commissioners. The board of commissioners will determine final approval of the recommended grant awards with all organizations being notified via e-mail in July 2023.
