10-Minute Walk Learning Series: Public Funding Opportunities
Includes a Live Event on 09/19/2019 at 2:00 PM (EDT)
Time and time again residents of cities across the country show their support for parks and recreation by supporting bond measures, so how can you join this success and what other public funding strategies are there? Join us for a webinar and interactive panel discussion on ways to increase public financing to support improved and sustained park access and quality. We'll be joined by guest speakers who have successfully leveraged public funding strategies for their park agency as well as economists and policy experts whom have generated data, analysis, and funding mechanisms to successfully increase public financing. Bring your questions and ideas for a robust discussion around best practices you can use in your city
