Project Description

Great Urban Parks Campaign

The Great Urban Parks Campaign was a multi-year grant from the JPB Foundation to the National Recreation and Parks Association (NRPA). The campaign’s objectives are to improve environmental and social outcomes in underserved communities through green infrastructure projects in local parks; and develop training programs for park, planning, and allied professionals to improve equity through green infrastructure. The LID Center assisted NRPA and the American Planning Association in the development of strategies, tools, and workshops that promote this approach to the funding, construction, and maintenance of sustainable infrastructure for the 21st Century.
