Trump administration officials have approved a $1.6 billion state and federal package of aid to cities and counties for parks, recreation and public lands.
The package includes $2.4 billion for parkland, $3 billion for parks and $1 million for recreational areas.
The funds, which will be distributed to about 6,400 cities and towns across the country, were announced Tuesday by Trump’s Office of Management and Budget.
The parks aid will help address the city’s need for affordable, accessible parks, the White House said.
The department is also developing a “citywide urban recreation program,” with $1 in grants awarded to more than 10,000 city and county towns for new or renovated recreational areas for youth, senior citizens and adults, as well as to urban neighborhoods with a disproportionate number of people of color.
A number of Trump administration proposals have also been approved for the parks department, including $1,000 grants for new recreational areas, $1 per $1 spent for recreation facilities in urban areas and $100,000 for a new park.
The Trump administration is also expected to announce a $3.4 million plan for urban recreation projects.
Trump’s parks department has already received a $2 billion grant from the Trump Administration to develop parkland in parks and recreation areas in the United States.
The funding will be used to help develop a plan for the development and expansion of new recreational and athletic facilities in cities, counties, towns and urban communities.
