DNR MEDIA RELEASE-2010 Snowmobile Trail Grants
(Anchorage, AK) – Applications for the 2010 Snowmobile Trail Grant Program are now being accepted. Snowmobile Trail Grants are competitive and reimbursable matching grants.
Grants are available for developing and maintaining public snowmobile trails and related facilities and for safety and educational projects. The Snowmobile Trail Program’s Grooming Pool provides funding for trail grooming, marking and signage for snowmobile trails.
Grants are made possible by snowmobile registration fees paid to the State by snowmobile owners. Continuation of this grant program is dependent upon an annual appropriation by the Legislature of snowmobile registration fees.
Returning Grooming Pool applicants are required to fill out an Established Trail Funding Request Form. New applicants or applicants for projects unrelated to the Grooming Pool must fill out the appropriate application for their trail development or safety/education projects. Instructions, forms and applications are available here: http://dnr.alaska.gov/parks/grants/snowmotr.htm
Applications and forms must be submitted or postmarked no later than July 1, 2010. Please submit applications and/or forms electronically to: firstname.lastname@example.org
