2022 Trail Fund Recipients Announced

by American Trails Staff

Thank you to all of the great organizations and agencies that applied for the Trail Fund this year. In our inaugural year, we received a total of 291 applications requesting over $3 million in project funding for the Trail Fund, with only a little more than $50,000 available. We were blown away by the interest but also knew this type of funding was very much needed for the trails community! As anticipated, it was an extremely competitive award round and we appreciate the interest in the funding from everyone that applied and the time commitment required by the application process. Rest assured, we will use this amazing response in our efforts to significantly ramp up the funding levels in the future.

We are excited to announce the winners of our 2022 Trail Fund grants. In our inaugural year, we funded a total of $50,424 directly to seven projects. These projects will be returning a 5 to 1 investment though matching funds.
