ALBANY — Applications are now available for the 2014 Greenway Conservancy Trail Grant Program, which will award up to $50,000 in matching grants this year.

Applications are available on the Greenway website, hudsongreenway.ny.gov, and must be completed and returned by 5 p.m. on Sept. 5.

This annual competitive grant funding opportunity is available to communities and not-for-profit organizations within the designated Hudson River Valley Greenway area, which extends from Saratoga and Washington counties to Battery Park, Manhattan. The program offers funding for trail planning and design, construction and rehabilitation, and education and interpretation. Emphasis is placed on trail projects that seek to implement the goals of the Greenway Trail Program, fill in identified gaps in the Greenway Trail System, and make improvements to designated Greenway Trails.

The Greenway Conservancy for the Hudson River Valley is a public benefit corporation established by the Greenway Act of 1991 to continue New York State’s commitment to the preservation, enhancement and development of the world-renowned scenic, natural, historic, cultural and recreational resources of the Hudson River Valley, while continuing to emphasize appropriate economic development activities and remaining consistent with the tradition of municipal home rule. One of the Greenway’s primary objectives is to establish a Hudson River Valley Greenway Trail system: a continuous, off-road trail that links cultural and historic sites, parks, open spaces and community centers, and provides public access to the Hudson River, from New York City to the Adirondack foothills. The Greenway Conservancy and the Hudson River Valley Greenway Communities Council also manage the Hudson River Valley National Heritage Area.
