Green standards are features such as recycled materials for playgrounds, boardwalks and shelters, low flow water fixtures and irrigation methods, pervious parking and pathways, and solar applications for lighting, and/or hot water systems.
The Parks for People Grant Program provides $1 million each year for the five year duration of the program, with a maximum reimbursable grant of $75,000 per funded project.

During the past six years this grant program has reimbursed fifty completed projects, totaling over 2.5 million dollars to the eligible municipalities in Broward County. Many new neighborhood park sites have been opened and existing park and open space sites improved with green amenities and native landscaping. We continue to move existing projects forward and look to the successful completion of another thirty park and/or open space sites.
