Leipsic Receives Grant Funds to Improve Parks for People of All Ages
PDG helped the Village of Leipsic secure a $16,900 grant from the 2019 AARP Community Challenge. AARP received more than 1,660 applications from nonprofits and government entities, resulting in a highly competitive selection process. A total of nearly $1.6 million was distributed to fund 159 quick-action projects across the country, helping communities make immediate improvements and jumpstart long-term progress to support residents of all ages.
The Village of Leipsic was one of two AARP grant recipients awarded in Ohio. The funds will be used to create inviting, accessible gathering spaces for people of all ages through new outdoor games and a fire pit area at Bennett Park.
