Parks and Recreation Development

The Park & Recreation Development (PARD) Fund is a state-funded, noncompetitive, reimbursable grant programs for eligible local governments or special purpose district entities which provide recreational opportunities within each county. PARD assists in the development of new public recreation facilities or with the enhancement/renovation of existing facilities. Eligible entities are notified of new allocation amounts each July and projects are submitted to the Horry County Legislative Delegation each August. The Delegation then decides what projects are to receive funding and the amounts with the endorsement of a majority weighted vote factor of the Horry County Legislative Delegation members.
