Applications Open for Mastenbrook Grant Program

Mastenbrook Grant ProjectFollowing a three-month administrative review, the Fairfax County Park Authority Board lifted the temporary hold on the Mastenbrook Grant Program and applications are now being accepted.

As a result of the administrative review, the Park Authority is introducing new criterion for eligibility. In order to be considered for a grant, the maximum project cost for proposed projects cannot exceed $100,000.

The added criterion is intended to refocus the Mastenbrook Grant Program on its original intent: to encourage community investment in smaller capital projects that enhance parks and park facilities.

For larger projects estimated to cost more than $100,000, funding proposals may still be submitted to the Fairfax County Park Foundation.

Since 1999, the Mastenbrook Grant Program has awarded approximately $2.2 million in grants for projects valued at more than $16.5 million. Grants ranging from a few hundred dollars to the maximum of $20,000 have funded projects such as trail improvements, construction of gazebos and shelters, dog parks, playgrounds and athletic field improvements.
