Must Read

The board of directors of the Fairfax County Park Authority on Sept. 14 allocated funding to continue the Mastenbrook Volunteer Matching Grant Program.

The allocation of $800,000 from the voter-approved 2020 park bond provides local organizations the ability to continue applying for up to $20,000 in matching grants for park projects.

The initiative was created in 1999 at the suggestion of board member John Mastenbrook. Since its inception, the program has awarded approximately $1.98 million in grants for 204 projects that are valued at more than $14.7 million.

“Grants ranging from just a few hundred dollars to the maximum of $20,000 per project have made possible park enhancements, such as trail improvements, construction of gazebos and picnic shelters, athletic field improvements, and much more,” Park Authority officials said.
