Deadline: June 15, 2010
Eastman Kodak Company, the Conservation Fund, and the National Geographic Society invite organizations working to create or improve a greenway, trail, or waterway to apply for a Kodak American Greenways Award grant. The program invites land trusts, local governments, and other organizations to submit proposals for small greenway project grants.
Funded projects typically advance one or more of the program goals- catalyzing new greenway projects, assisting grassroots greenway organizations, leveraging additional money for conservation and greenway development, and promoting use and enjoyment of greenways.
For 2010, the program anticipates awarding up to 50 percent of the grants to greenways projects that involve natural, cultural, and/or socio-political historical themes. Previous recipients have undertaken projects that included an addition to the historic Lewis and Clark Trail, the conversion of an abandoned rail line into a multi-use public trail along the historic Mission Zanja irrigation canal, and the construction of a trail connecting historically black colleges and universities in Tennessee.
Most grants will range from $500 to $1,000 each, with no grant exceeding $2,500.
