Volusia ECHO Grant Award
What Do the YMCA Playground, the Environmental Learning Center and the Museum and Gardens Have in Common? First, we all improve the quality of life in Ormond Beach and help make our community special. And second, we all have received grant funding from the Volusia County ECHO (Environment/Culture/History/Outdoor Recreation) program.
We are proud to announce that the Museum and Gardens has been awarded an ECHO grant in the amount of $400,000 to help fund the renovation and expansion project slated to begin later this year! The application process is detailed and competitive. The grant reimburses for designated expenses up to $400,000, and each recipient organization provides at least a 100% match in funding.
Volusia County’s ECHO grant program provides funds for the acquisition, restoration, construction or improvement of environmental, cultural, historic and outdoor recreation facilities throughout the County for residents' use and enjoyment.
ECHO was approved by voters in 2000 and is on the ballot for re-authorization in 2020. The program will expire and cease to exist if not re-authorized.
Since 2001, ECHO has provided grants for 241 projects in every region of Volusia County, and the average homeowner pays less than $25 a year for the ECHO fund.
ECHO has raised more the $95 million, while grant recipients have provided more than $150 million in matches. Attendance records show ECHO funded projects are visited by more than 600,000 people every year.
