$5,000 - Accessible Playground/Ball Field
This grant will help to support the construction of the first accessible playground ever built at a public school in the county, which will also be the only barrier-free and inclusive playground in the entire county. The playground will benefit the large population of students in special education at the school, including dozens of children that use wheelchairs and gait trainers, and will facilitate children of all abilities the opportunity to play together. Grant funds will support programmatic equipment. This grant is funded through a cooperative agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (Award #1U59DD000838-01).
