Dog parks come in all shapes and sizes. Check out what your future park

frequently asked questions.

Can the money be used to pave parking lots?

Yes. As long as the parking lot is specifically for the dog park and not another area of the park.

Is this a reimbursement grant?

Unfortunately, reimbursement is not a part of the grant program. However, if you happen to spend the funds that you already have by then, you can use the grant for additional enhancements.

Would a project currently undergoing development be eligible for this grant program?

Yes, as long as you specify what the Dog Park Dash funds would be going toward in your Executive Summary, that won't be a problem.

Should the proposed project budget and operations budget be submitted with 
the grant application?

Only the Executive Summary, Land Verification and Letter of Support from city officials will need to be submitted with the application. The proposed budget is great to be thinking about now because - should you be chosen - you'll need to present those down the road.

We have evidence from our register of deeds office that our government owns our dog park land, but it is not necessarily a letter. Would this suffice as evidence of property ownership?

Only the Executive Summary, Land Verification and Letter of Support from city officials will need to be submitted with the application. The proposed budget is great to be thinking about now because - should you be chosen - you'll need to present those down the road.
