Grant available for snowmobile safety and trail signing project in rural Alaska
(Anchorage, AK) - The Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation is inviting interested organizations to apply for a one-time $15,000 grant that can be used for snowmobile safety and trail signing/marking projects on trails used primarily as transportation corridors in rural Alaska, off the road system. The money for this grant had been previously allocated in 2013 but not utilized by the original grantee.
The Snowmobile Trail Grant Program offers competitive and reimbursable matching grants for developing and maintaining public snowmobile trails and related facilities and for safety, education, and trail signing projects. The Snowmobile Trail Grant Program’s Grooming Pool provides funding for trail grooming, signing, and maintenance. The program is funded with an annual appropriation by the Legislature, based on revenue from snowmobile registration fees.
To apply for these grant funds please visit http://dnr.alaska.gov/parks/grants/snowmotr.htm and submit an application for a Safety, Signing, and Educational Project. The application deadline is July 1, 2014.
