The Board of County Commissioners has allocated funds to support agencies and organizations coordinating recreation activities throughout Pitt County. These Recreation Program Management Funds are designated to support and enhance the delivery of quality recreation programs that are open to all citizens. The funds are distributed on an annual basis by the Community Schools and Recreation Advisory Council, and will be made available to agencies and organizations in the way of matching grants of up to $2,000. These grants are approved on a 50/50 matching basis, with up to 50 percent of total project funds being provided by the County, and 50 percent by the applying agency or organization.
This form of distribution was selected in order to support the maximum number of resources in providing recreation opportunities. The Community Schools and Recreation Staff oversee this process as a part of their mission to work collaboratively with agencies and organizations throughout the County.
Applications are available in the Community Schools and Recreation Center, located at 4561 County Home Road in Greenville, or available on the Pitt County website at www.pittcountync.gov/RPMF. All applications are due in the Community Schools and Recreation Office no later than 5:00pm on February 28, 2017.
