Community Collaboration Grant Program

The Beta

Met Rec strives to improve our citizens’ quality of life by promoting vital recreation opportunities.  The Community Collaboration Grant Program is designed to:

  • Promote quality recreation amenities and sustainable programming for the District’s Service Area.
  • Encourage efforts that reduce local barriers to recreation faced by youth, elderly, and underserved communities.
  • Keep recreational programs and services diverse and affordable. 
  • Support collaborative initiatives that achieve solutions needed by the entire valley. 


For 2022, Met Rec appropriated $30,000 for its Community Collaboration Grant Program.

Eligible Applicants

Local governmental organizations, special districts, and non-profit organizations are eligible.

Application Process & Timeline

Please note, Met Rec can only reimburse grant funds for work that is initiated and completed AFTER the execution of the Grant Agreement Contract.  Community Collaboration grantees are allowed up to one year from the award date to complete their project.  Should unexpected circumstances arise that delay the project timeline, grantees are to contact the District Manager.  If you are funded this year, there is no guarantee of funding next year.  Every applicant must reapply each year and may or may not be granted funds for similar or different projects.
