Dr Pepper Snapple and KaBOOM! Offer $15K Let's Play Community Construction Grants to qualified USA based organizations - Applications due July 20, 2012
The Dr Pepper Snapple Group and KaBOOM! are offering grants to qualifying United States-based organizations for the purchase of playground equipment that will be built using the KaBOOM! community-build model.
The program will provide grantees with a $15,000 grant to be applied toward their equipment purchase from a KaBOOM! preferred vendor; access to planning tools on the Our Dream Playground Web site; the opportunity to receive one-on-one planning support from KaBOOM! alumni; and post-build access to the KaBOOM! alumni network. Grantees will plan their project and share best practices and challenges through the Our Dream Playground Web site.
The program is open to U.S.-based municipalities, neighborhood associations, schools, day care centers, and nonprofit organizations without a playground or with existing equipment that is unsafe for children to use.
Applicants must own the land, or must possess a long-term lease and obtain permission from the land owner to construct a playground. The scope of the playground project must include a total playground equipment purchase between $24,000 and $40,000.
Key criteria used in the competitive selection process include demonstrated need for a playground in the community, the anticipated impact that the playground and project will have on the community, the project's impact on low-income areas and capacity to engage the community in planning and building the playground, and the project's capacity to generate matching funds to support and complete the build.
Visit the KaBOOM! Web site for complete program guidelines and application procedures.
