(Washington, DC) DC Parks and Recreation is continuing its Request for Space Project for the upcoming year. Applications must be completed and returned by September 6, 2002.
In an effort to leverage corporate, nonprofit, and other government resources in support of recreation in un-served and underserved neighborhoods throughout the District, DC Parks and Recreation opens its doors to community-based nonprofits in need of facility space.
Free space in recreation facilities will be available from October 1, 2002 to September 30, 2003. No money is available for program or other costs; the project offers space only.
According to Director Neil O. Albert, the department seeks organizations that provide recreational, artistic, and/or cultural services targeting populations such as adolescents, young adults, seniors, and the general community.
“We seek partners that mirror our mission of delivering quality recreational services,” Albert said. “We believe that offering free space to community-based groups increases the quality of life in that community.”
Applicants must be:
Nonprofit incorporated organizations
Emerging groups actively pursuing 501(c)(3) tax-exempt status
