Helping communities build safe places for kids to play
Responding to Communities' Playspace Needs
Our priority and focus is always on the safety and well-being of kids. While many playgrounds across the United States remain closed, our work to ensure that communities facing disinvestment have access to the resources to build playgrounds for kids and communities continues.
With feedback from our communities and public health experts, we've developed a responsive approach to continue playspace projects, and award playground resources. With a few changes to our applications and playspace project processes, we can continue to amplify the power of communities to put an end to playspace inequity.
