Technical Assistance Program (TAP) to Increase Park Projects and Programs in L.A. County

About 
Our Technical Assistance Program (TAP) will provide grantmaking information, training, technical resources, and curated professional services for park ‘High-Need’ or ‘Very-High-Need’ communities.  These resources are meant to help develop new eligible projects and improve existing projects to qualify for Measure A competitive grants programs.

The TAP map showing Need Area Groupings can be viewed here.

Who Can Apply for TAP?

A public agency or non-profit organization working in Park ‘High-Need’ or ‘Very-High-Need’ communities, who meet the competitive grant eligibility requirements will be able to request TAP assistance.  TAP is currently under development.

TAP will include assistance to help:

  • Develop park project proposals that integrate multiple public benefits such as recreation, natural habitat, trails, water, public health, workforce development, education, stormwater reuse, transit and other elements;
  • Develop innovative partnerships to apply for and manage Measure A competitive grants;
  • Overcome challenges associated with developing proposals and applying for Measure A competitive grants;
  • Build long-term organizational capacity.
