American Trails is pleased to announce the Legacy Trails Grant Program. This program is administered by American Trails through a challenge cost share agreement with the USDA Forest Service and funds up to $1.5M of awards per year for 5 years through the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. The program supports partner trail projects that further the Legacy Roads and Trails criteria on National Forest System trails throughout the nine Forest Service Regions. This webinar will outline this new and exciting trails funding opportunity. Funding is open to nonprofit organizations, businesses, and local agencies supporting trails on U.S. Forest Service lands. This webinar is intended to provide an overview to service and conservation Corps about the program and grant application process.
