    Santa Paula, CA – The City of Santa Paula is applying for the California Department of Parks and Recreation Outdoor Equity Grants Program (OEP) and we need your help.

    The mission of the grant is encouraging healthy communities by connecting people to parks, supporting innovative recreational opportunities, embracing diversity, fostering inclusivity, and delivering superior customer service, with integrity for the enrichment of all.

    In 2019, the Outdoor Equity Grants Program (OEP) was enacted when Governor Gavin Newsom signed Assembly Bill 209 (AB 209) – Chapter 675 established by our very own Senator Monique Limón. OEP will increase the ability of residents in underserved communities, with an emphasis on students eligible for free or reduced-price meals, foster youth, and students of limited English proficiency, to participate in outdoor experiences at state parks and other public lands. OEP’s focus is on providing funding for transportation, logistics, program operations, and capacity costs associated with reaching historically underserved urban and rural communities throughout California.

    “The Outdoor Equity Grants Program will improve the health and wellness of our youth and families in our community through new educational and recreational activities, service learning, career pathways, and leadership opportunities that strengthen a connection to the natural world,” said Greg Barnes, Parks and Recreation Director.

    To help the City gather feedback from the community on the types of activities and opportunities we should offer, we need your input. You can participate in person at our local Farmers Market held Friday from 3PM-7PM at the Train Depot where you can interact with our picture board, or you can take our survey online at https://bit.ly/3EU3w7H. You can also scan the QR code with your cell phone camera and it will take you to the survey as well.

    For additional information on this grant opportunity please visit www.parks.ca.gov.
