The Hudson River Valley Greenway is pleased to announce that applications are now available for the 2013 Greenway Conservancy Small Grant Program. A total of $50,000 is available for matching grants in this year’s program.

The program offers funding for trail planning and design, construction and rehabilitation, and education and interpretation.
Emphasis is placed on trail projects that seek to implement the goals of the Greenway Trail Vision Plan, fill in identified gaps in the Greenway Trail System, and make improvements to designated Greenway Trails. Copies of the Hudson River Valley Greenway Trail Vision Plan are available online.
