Seed Money for the Development of Greenways

Kodak American Greenways Awards Program
The Kodak American Greenways Awards Program, a collaboration of the Eastman Kodak Company, the National Geographic Society, and the Conservation Fund, provides seed grants to stimulate the planning and design of greenways, trails, and waterways in communities throughout America. The focus is on setting aside corridors of protected public and private land established along rivers, ridges, abandoned railroad corridors, utility right-of-ways, canals, scenic roads, or other linear features. For 2011, the program anticipates awarding up to fifty percent of the grants to those greenways projects that demonstrate the convergence of economic prosperity and the environment. Most grants range from $500 to $1,000; the maximum grant is $2,500. Online applications must be submitted by June 15, 2011. Visit the Conservation Fund’s website for application guidelines.
