The Village of Maple Park was awarded a Community Economic Development Implementation Grant of $20,000 from the DeKalb County Community Foundation. This grant is instrumental in realizing the vision of a vibrant new playground for the Maple Park community. A key element that emerged from the Village’s economic development planning process was to strive toward enhancing recreational options for residents spanning all age groups.
The Community Foundation developed the grant program to provide additional opportunities for communities in DeKalb County to apply for funding to support implementation projects that align with their economic plan or for further economic planning.
Foundation Community Engagement Director Teri Spartz states, “These grants play a pivotal role in facilitating the implementation of economic development plans and projects that contribute to overall community prosperity and help communities thrive.”.
A total of $300,000 is committed to this grant program through donor support. Each community is eligible to apply for a maximum of $20,000 over the life of the grant program, which is nearing completion by the end of 2024. Grant applications must reference a recently completed community economic development plan and connect to implementation projects within the plan or to support continued economic planning.
