The National Park Foundation recognizes that sometimes the smallest grants can make the largest differences. Impact Grants (up to $25,000) are designed to help parks in need of a small amount of additional funding transform innovative ideas into successful programs or partnerships that address critical needs. Past grantee projects have ranged from overhauling infrastructure at nine in-park community gardens in Washington, DC, to conserving historic paintings in Iowa and developing bi-lingual podcasts and distance learning programs in Florida.
