The Hudson River Valley Greenway Grant Program provides matching grants to Greenway Communities and Compact Communities. Greenway Communities are eligible to receive up to $10,000 to develop plans or projects consistent with the five Greenway criteria: natural and cultural resource protection, economic development, public access, regional planning, and heritage and environmental education. Higher amounts are awarded for intermunicipal projects.
Greenway Communities Grant Program provides grant funding to help communities develop and implement a vision for their future that balances Greenway criteria of economic development considerations with resource protection and promotion objectives.
Typical grants under the Greenway Communities Grant Program range from $5,000 - $10,000, with greater financial assistance available for projects involving two or more municipalities.
Greenway Compact communities are eligible to receive more than $10,000 for projects that develop, approve, and implement a compact strategy consistent with the Greenway criteria and the Greenway Act. Typical grant amounts range between $5,000 and $25,000.
