PTNY Capacity building grants available for park and trail groups

Parks & Trails New York is offering a new round of Capacity Building Grants for park and trail groups in New York State.  The grants, of up to $3,000, will strengthen not-for-profit organizations that are working to build and protect parks and trails in communities across the state — helping to not only provide places for close-to-home, healthy physical activity but also generate additional tourist dollars to strengthen local economies.  Application deadline is November 16, 2011.

 

Parks & Trails New York’s goal is to enable not-for-profits to better fulfill their missions; improve their reach, effectiveness, and impact; leverage more resources; and increase community support for and involvement in park and trail planning, development, and stewardship.  Funds can be used to assist with activities associated with organizational start-up and development, training, communications, and volunteer recruitment and management. For more information email Parks & Trails New York or call 518-434-1583.
