Roswell has agreed to accept $21,080 from the federal government to purchase equipment and hire instructors for new VA Wheelchair Softball and Adaptive Cycling programs for disabled veterans.

The City Council approved a resolution accepting the FY 201 Adaptive Sports Grant from the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The grant does not require local matching funds, according to a staff report to the council.

The Roswell Recreation, Parks, Historic and Cultural Affairs Department will be responsible for the adaptive sports program.
