The Alaska Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation is inviting interested organizations to apply for a one-time $15,000 grant that can be used for snowmachine safety and trail signing/marking projects on trails used as transportation corridors in rural Alaska.
The Snowmachine 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 Snowmachine 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 snowmachine registration fees.
To apply for these grant funds 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.
