Exclamation Tread Lightly! Stewardship Grants

Tread Lightly! Stewardship Grant Program
Tread Lightly! recognizes that one of the best ways to promote responsible outdoor recreation is to get recreational enthusiasts involved in the stewardship of their favorite recreational areas. Tread Lightly!’s Stewardship Grants are designed to help individuals and clubs organize clean-ups, trail maintenance work days and other small stewardship projects. The maximum grant amount is $500, and those funds can be used to rent equipment or purchase supplies like garbage bags, water, or snacks for volunteers, etc.

Who is eligible?
You must be a Tread Lightly! member club or Three-Year Individual Member to apply. All other membership categories are not eligible.
http://www.treadlightly.org/page.php...s/Members.html

How much grant money can an applicant receive?
The maximum grant award is $500.

When are grant applications due?
Grant applications and supporting material are due by 8pm on the date noted as deadline for that cycle. We have the following deadlines - March 1, June 1, August 1, November 1.

What do I need for my application?
Applicants must submit an online grant application, a letter of support from a representative of the land management agency or land owner and, if applicable, any additional documentation including photos of the area.

Where should I send supplemental documentation for this grant?
Your letter of support and additional documentation can be emailed to [email protected] or mailed to 353 E 400 S, Suite 100 Salt Lake City, UT 84111

When should my project or event be completed?
Projects can start anytime after the grant has been awarded and must be completed and final reports submitted within 6 months of the award notification.

If I am awarded a grant, when should I expect funding to be released?
Tread Lightly! will provide fifty percent of the grant award up front. The final payment will be issued upon receipt of a complete project report and other requested documentation.
