If you have been toying with the idea of hosting a Sojourn on your local waterway, there is still time for you to participate in POWR’s grant program. The grant application will close on March 2, 2012 at 5:00 pm.
Because of the short time before the close of the application window, all applicants are encouraged to contact Josh Karns, Program Manager, to notify him of your pending application. Josh can be reached at 717-230-8044 x 12 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.

Grant recipients will be notified on March 9, 2012.
