The Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor is now accepting applications for its IMPACT! Grant program. The grants range from $2,500 to $12,000 and will be awarded to municipalities, not-for-profits with a 501(c)(3) designation, and federally-recognized Native American tribes within the boundaries of the Erie Canalway National Heritage Corridor.
The grant program is competitive, and applications should focus on one or more of five key priorities: showcasing the canal corridor’s distinctive sense of place, protecting canal historic and natural resources, promoting recreational opportunities, creating “must-do” travel experiences, and spurring heritage-based economic growth.
A one-to-one match consisting of non-federal support is required and the awards are distributed on a reimbursement basis at project completion. Applications are due by Friday, October 23rd.
Applicants are strongly advised to contact program staff to discuss proposed projects prior to submitting an application. For more information, contact Andy Kitzmann at (518) 237-7000 x201, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
