Recreation Grants

The South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation, and Tourism administers several grant programs ranging from the development of public recreational opportunities throughout the state to marketing support for qualified nonprofit organizations. Emphasis and priority will be placed on projects which serve a large portion of the youth (18 and under) of the county and those which have not received funding previously.


The 2020 Recreation Grant application is available here. The application deadline was extended to noon on Tuesday, June 23, 2020, to the County Administrator's office, 1234 North St, Bamberg, SC 29003. Completed applications may also be emailed to Mrs. Rose Shepherd at  


Electronic means of obtaining and submitting the application is preferred because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
