The Parks and Natural Areas Subcommittee established the Parks Awards Program in 2006 to highlight best practices and innovative approaches to parks planning and implementation. H-GAC honors projects in the categories of Projects $500,000 or more; Projects under $500,000; Planning Process; and Policy Tools. They are seeking projects that expand parks and natural areas for improved quality of life, habitat, and water quality. Winning projects, which exhibit efficiency, effectiveness, and innovation, serve as models to be replicated throughout the region.
