    Cool-blue Rhythm Tread Lightly! Stewardship Grants

    Tread Lightly! recognizes that one of the best ways to promote responsible outdoor recreation is to get recreational enthusiasts involved in the stewardship of their favorite recreational areas. Tread Lightly!’s Stewardship Grants are designed to help individuals and clubs organize clean-ups, trail maintenance work days and other small stewardship projects. The maximum grant amount is $500, and those funds can be used to rent equipment or purchase supplies like garbage bags, water, or snacks for volunteers, etc.

    Alrighty... Next round is open for Application! Paperwork must be submitted by 8pm on March 1st.

    When are grant applications due?
    Grant applications and all supporting material are due by 8:00 A.M. mountain time March 1, 2012.

    What do I need for my application?
    Applicants must submit an online grant application, a letter of support from a representative of the land management agency or land owner and, if applicable, any additional documentation including photos of the area.

    Where should I send supplemental documentation for this grant?
    Your letter of support and additional documentation can be emailed to grants(at)treadlightly.org or mailed to 353 E. 400 S. Suite 100, SLC, UT 84111.

    When should my project or event be completed?
    For this grant cycle, all projects or events must be completed and final reports submitted by July 31, 2012.

    If I am awarded a grant, when should I expect funding to be released?
    Tread Lightly! will provide fifty percent of the grant award up front. The final payment will be issued upon receipt of a complete project report and other requested documentation.

    Please visit the Treadlightly.org website for more details... (Still can't post links )

    I get forgetful sometimes. Thanks for posting that up. And in case anyone is wondering where that money goes, our federal audit rates us at nearly 90% of membership fees going back to on-the-ground programming such as training and stewardship.
