We are now accepting applications for grants to partly fund river sojourns during the 2012 paddling season. The grant application will close on March 2, 2012 at 5:00 pm.
Grants are made based on available funding for up to $900 per water day. Organizers are eligible to apply for an initial 60% of the grant amount to offset the upfront costs. Upon completion of the scheduled events, organizers submit a request for the final 40% of the grant along with a complete expense summary, event report, insurance forms, and media coverage report.
This Sojourn Planning Overview (pdf) can help local organizers in planning their event and completing the grant application.
All applicants are encouraged to contact Josh Karns, Program Manager, to discuss your plans prior to submitting an application. Josh can be reached at 717-230-8044 x 12 or at firstname.lastname@example.org. Grant recipients will be notified on March 9, 2012.
