The Trail Fund is a joint initiative of the Trails Move People Coalition, led by American Trails, to assist the trails community with funding to support maintenance, research, and stewardship training needs.


What is The Trail Fund?

American Trails is working on an emerging grant program known as “The Trail Fund” that is dedicated to maintaining and enhancing America’s trails through maintenance, research, and stewardship training projects.

It is our intention to open up the inaugural application process in early 2022, and for interested individuals/organizations to be able to apply for funding every year. The amount of funding available and number of grants we can offer will vary year by year based on sponsorship support. We are continuing to accept sponsorships and donors for this program.
