McFarland RPD Awarded Relief Funding

McFarland Recreation and Park District        

District Awarded  $211,712

in State Covid Relief Funding 

The State of California just announced that MRPD will be receiving $211,712 as a result of our application submitted in October. This is due to the efforts of the California Special District Association working alongside several park and rec managers throughout the state. We visited with our state assembly and senate members so they were informed about the impacts of COVID-19 on our operations. The amount of the award is the third highest for park districts in Kern County. Our staff did an excellent job of maintaining records on what was spent to handle the pandemic. This made our application process easier. Great job everyone. Christmas came a bit early for us!
