Park and Trail Partnership Grants Available

Parks & Trails New York (PTNY) anticipates opening up the fourth round of competitive grants through the NYS Park and Trail Partnership
Program in mid September. The program is administered by PTNY, in partnership with the New York State (NYS) Office of Parks,
Recreation and Historic Preservation (OPRHP), and with support from Governor Cuomo.

The Park and Trail Partnership Program is a $500,000 capacity-building matching grants program funded through the NYS Environmental
Protection Fund. The program is designed to:

  • Enhance the preservation, stewardship, interpretation, maintenance and promotion of New York State parks, trails, state historic
    sites and public lands.
  • Increase the sustainability, effectiveness, productivity, and volunteer and fundraising capabilities of not-for-profit organizations
    that promote, maintain, and support New York State parks, trails, state historic sites and public lands.
  • Promote the tourism and economic development benefits of outdoor recreation through the growth and expansion of a connected
    statewide network of parks, trails, greenways and public lands.

Prospective applicants are strongly encouraged to visit PTNY website for more information. All final applications must be submitted
by November 30, 2018.
