PARTF Grant Applicants

Since 1994, the North Carolina Parks and Recreation Trust Fund (PARTF) has awarded matching grants to local governments for parks, public beach access, and state park improvements. The initiative of the program is an aim to improve the quality of life in North Carolina communities by assisting local governments in meeting their park and public access objectives. McGill provided planning and grant assistance to 13 PARTF grant applicants this year, and we were successful in helping those clients secure over six million dollars in funding for their projects.
