The Recreation Assistance Partnership Program (RAPP) is an initiative that creates improved access to recreation experiences for all Oakland County residents by providing mobile recreation units, bus transportation, nature education programming and other services to more than 250,000 participants each year who may not otherwise have had access to these activities. Oakland County cities, villages and townships; community parks and recreation departments; schools; Downtown Development Authorities; and nonprofit organizations are invited to apply for RAPP funds through a grant process and then use the monies to create quality recreation opportunities in their communities.
RAPP was first implemented in 1982 and is part of Oakland County Parks and Recreation's Strategic Master Plan to serve all areas and citizens of Oakland County. RAPP grants are dispersed on a first-come, first-served basis beginning in mid-February for programming to take place Memorial Day through Labor Day.
