Funding Your Park


Park Pride Grant Programs

Our grants, Small Change Grants, Community Building Grants, and Legacy Grants are designed to enable communities to gain experience and build capacity as they take on increasingly larger capital improvements in City of Atlanta and DeKalb County Parks.

Applicants and interested community members are encouraged to contact Park Pride to discuss proposed park improvement projects. The purpose of our grant program and the core of Park Pride’s work is to create community driven demand for more and better parks.

Small Change Grants are accepted anytime throughout the year, while Community Building Grants and Legacy Grants are due each year at the end of September. Please subscribe to the Park Pride email newsletter to stay up to date with grant information.
