Beginning on October 27, 2015, American Rivers will begin accepting proposals for our new Connecting Communities to Rivers Grant Program, which will provide financial support for projects that connect communities in the Intermountain West to their rivers by improving family-friendly recreational opportunities and protecting rivers and surrounding lands.
Grants ranging from $5,000 to $25,000 will be awarded to action-oriented projects that connect people to their rivers through recreation; establish a strong sense of river and land stewardship; and have clear and identifiable community, recreation, conservation and economic benefits.
Applications are due on December 1, 2015. Local and tribal governments, nonprofits, for profits and others located within Colorado, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico, and Wyoming are encouraged to apply.
For more information and to access the grant application form, please visit BlueTrailsGuide.org/Grants.
Prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to participate in an informational webinar
on Tuesday, November 3, 2015 at 10 a.m. MT. You can sign up for the webinar here
