The primary funding for the implementation of the Recreation Master Plan is through grants.

In 2022, Vevay Township received a Planning Grant though the Ingham County 7th Round Trail and Park Millage Grant Program.  This grant was used to develop the current Recreation Masterplan including the phase approach to the renovation of Vevay Community Park and the Hayhoe Trail feasibility study.

In 2023, Vevay Township received a Michigan Department of Natural Resources Passport Grant in the amount of $150,000.  Vevay Township Downtown Development Authority provided the match funding in the amount of $50,000.  This grant will be used to implement phase one of the Community Park Renovation.

 

In 2023, Vevay Township used approximately $30,000 of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funding for replacement of the 30 plus year old swing set including the installation of ADA compliant ground cover.

 

In 2024, the Ingham County Board of Commissioners adopted the proposed strategy and spending plan for the 8th Round of the Trail & Park Millage Grant Program, contingent upon millage renewal in 2026, to fund $240,000 for phase 2 of the Community Park Improvements and $1,170,000 for the Hayhoe Trail Extension and Trailhead.

 

The Ingham County Trail & Park Millage Grant Program are your tax dollars.  These grants bring your tax dollars back into Vevay Township.

In 2024, the Vevay Township Downtown Development Authority continued their financial commitment in the amount of $150,000 of matching funds.  The Vevay Board of Trustees continued their financial commitment through the Capital Improvement Plan.
