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.
