Thirty not-for-profit organizations across the state involved with stewardship of state parks, trails, historic sites, and public lands recently received $900,000 in funding under the state’s Park and Trail Partnership Grants program.
Supported through the state Environmental Protection Fund, the grants support partner group efforts to raise private funds for capital projects, perform maintenance and beautification undertakings, provide educational programming, and promote public use of the parks through hosting of special events.
Grants are administered in partnership with the not-for-profit advocacy group Parks & Trails New York. Recipients must raise outside funding of at least 10 percent of the grant amount received.
More information, including a list of awardees, is available online.
