Our Funding

NEDSRA relies on a variety of funding sources to provide comprehensive services at the highest standards of excellence.  Our partner park districts and villages provide the majority of financial support, generated from tax dollars under the Special Recreation Levy.  Additional funds from state grants, foundations, corporations and fundraising events help meet the growing need for services and accessible transportation.  Modest program fees are charged for most services, similar to those charged by our member partners.
