FIELD RENOVATION GRANT

2015 REDS COMMUNITY FUND FIELD RENOVATION GRANT
REDS COMMUNITY FUND FIELD RENOVATION GRANT

Since 2006, the Reds Community Fund has invested more than 2.5 million dollars building and primarily renovating neighborhood ball fields throughout Reds Country. Many of these projects represent collaborations with local municipalities and recreation departments. However, each year, the Reds Community Fund provides an opportunity to apply for a one-time field renovation grant to support their home field.

The "Community Makeover" program with P&G and the Cincinnati Zoo will continue in 2015 as a part of the Major League Baseball All Star Game and won't be available as a grant opportunity.
