Applications Invited for Kodak American Greenways Grants
Deadline: June 1, 2004

The Kodak American Greenways Awards Program, a partnership of the Eastman Kodak Company (<a href="http://www.kodak.com/">http://www.kodak.com/</a>), the Conservation Fund (<a href="http://www.conservationfund.org/">http://www.conservationfund.org/</a>), and the National Geographic Society (<a href="http://www.nationalgeographic.com/">http://www.nationalgeographic.com/</a>), provides small grants to stimulate the planning and design of greenways in communities throughout America.

Grant recipients are selected according to criteria that include the importance of the project to local greenway development efforts; demonstrated community support for the project; the extent to which the grant will result in matching funds or other support from public or private sources; the likelihood of tangible results; and the capacity of the organization to complete the project.

Grants may be used for activities such as mapping, ecological assessments, surveying, conferences, and design activities; developing brochures, interpretative displays, audio-visual productions, or public opinion surveys; hiring consultants; incorporating land trusts; and/or building footbridges, planning bike paths, or other creative projects. In general, grants can be used for all appropriate expenses needed to complete a greenway project, including planning, technical assistance, legal, and other costs.

Awards will be given primarily to local, regional, or statewide nonprofit organizations. Although public agencies may also apply, community organizations will receive preference.

The maximum grant award is $2,500, although most grants will range from $500 to $1,500.

Only online applications will be accepted. See the Conservation Fund Web site for complete guidelines, application forms, and information on previous grant recipients.
