Your organization could receive up to $2,500 in grant funds and recognition that comes with selection by this prestigious national program.
The Eastman Kodak Company, The Conservation Fund and the National Geographic Society team up each year to present the Kodak American Greenways Awards Program. One major element of the Program involves “seed” grant awards to organizations that are growing our nation’s network of greenways, blueways, trails and natural areas. These projects connect Americans to the outdoors and their heritage.
For 2011, the Program anticipates awarding up to fifty percent of the grants to those greenways projects that demonstrate the convergence of economic prosperity and the environment. The vitality of a community depends not only on its economic prospects but also on the quality of its natural environment and outdoor recreational space.
Please see the application at http://grants.conservationfund.org for full details and to apply for consideration of your greenway project for Kodak American Greenway Award funding. The deadline to apply is June 15.
