With the support of our partners, NRPA invested more than $3.6 million dollars into nearly 200 communities in 2023 to advance equitable and resilient parks, pollinator protection, youth sports, older adult physical activity programs and Community Wellness Hubs. Why? Because parks and recreation is the place where community grows. From advancing stormwater resilience through parks in New Orleans to creating mentorship programs in Mount Airy, North Carolina, NRPA is ensuring that the people who strengthen and grow our communities have the resources, funding, and research they need and deserve, as well as a community of their own. We are in awe of the power of park and recreation professionals, and we’re here to do everything we can to champion them.
