Trail Protection Grants
The NCTA Trail Protection Fund has been established to provide funding to permanently protect the corridor of the North Country National Scenic Trail. NCTA staff, Chapters, Affiliates and Partners are eligible to submit grant requests to fund acquisition of rights of way including Trail Access Easements (and related costs) or to work with partners toward the acquisition of conservation easements or land in fee.
As part of the NCTA commitment to just, equitable, diverse, and inclusive (JEDI) trail access and experiences, we invite applications for the new JEDI Mini-Grant program. These grants are intended to support JEDI-focused affinity groups leading experiences on the North Country Trail. Workshops, programs, day hikes, overnight trips, and other opportunities connecting people to the Trail are eligible for funding between $500 and $1,000. Applications are received and reviewed on a rolling basis and awarded as funding allows. For more information, contact email@example.com.
