    Hello All – Sending out a quick note because I am seeking some guidance form you.
    – Do you have some sense of options for sidewalk lighting? The team was looking for some options that were solar powered and found the cost to be in $7-$8k per pole. Thoughts?
    – Do you know of some good options related to the rubber cushion/base (pieces or mats) that are placed in children’s parks? Any sense for what some reasonable cost options maybe?

    Response from Sheri Benson (Marshfield):

    Our electric co-op has a foundation that offer several $10,000 individual grants annually that nonprofit orgs can apply for project funding for lighting and other projects in the community. Check yours in your community. A lot of multimodal transportation grants cover the sidewalk installation, upgrades and making sidewalks ADA compliant along with lighting if funding is available.

    There are a ton of grant options for poured in place surfacing under playground equipment. Also, check the park foundation, they offer grants 4 times a year.

    Here is another website you can view to look at options.

    Response from John Benson (Marshfield):

    In regards to a rubber matting in playgrounds, the Missouri DNR has a grant program for recycled tires for this purpose. I believe it is an 80 /20 grant program to a local match is required. The City of Marshfield has obtained two of these grants in the past three years.
