New Funding Opportunity
The extended timeline for additional sales and use tax collection through 2041 allowed the KPFD Board of Directors to craft a new project funding proposal document outlining how existing partners, the county, surrounding cities, and other public entities could apply for construction funds as they become available.
New Project Proposals were submitted to the KPFD Board of Directors in 2019. Projects were reviewed and evaluated for consideration. Proposal criteria included:
-The project needs to create economic development opportunities across the county
-PFD funds expenditures for the project are an efficient use of public and private monies
-The project is innovative and creative
-The project will be a multi-purpose facility and open to the public
-The project’s total value must be $10,000,000 or greater, and matching funds from the public partner are no less than one-third of the cost for design and construction
