We are excited to announce the winners of our 2023 Legacy Trail Program grants. In the first year of this program, we funded a total of $1.35 million to 33 organizations.
We are grateful to have received 84 excellent project applications for the Legacy Trails Program, requesting $4.3 million dollars, approximately 3 times as much funding as we are able to award.
In this first year of the program, it was a very competitive award round and our oversight committee had to make some difficult decisions. We appreciate the interest in the funding from everyone that applied and understand the time commitment required by the application process.
"We are excited to be able to support such excellent projects across the country, which will have a positive impact on watershed health, public access to the outdoors and overall trail resiliency" says Cathy Corlett, Trail Fund Director at American Trails. This grant program is administered by American Trails and funded through a cost-share agreement with the United States Forest Service to support trails projects on forests and grasslands managed by the USFS through 2027.
