By involving stakeholders in park development, our grant writer can build a sense of ownership and support for the development of parks, leading to more sustainable and successful outcomes in understanding the diverse and often complex interests that shape park development, allowing our grant writers to seek funds to create more equitable and inclusive parks that meet the needs of all members of the community.
