The Borough Assembly has approved funds in the FY21 Capital Projects budget for distribution to organizations, individuals, or businesses that can show they will provide winter trail grooming and trail maintenance for the public benefit. The funding may be used to groom trails for dog mushers, Nordic skiers, and other winter trail uses.

The funds will be awarded to those organizations, individuals, or businesses that can show they will provide the most public benefit, and have the available resources to accomplish the most with the funding. This grant will require documented 50% match, which can include in-kind volunteer hours, value of snow machine rental, cost of maintenance items, etc.

The grant will be available to pay for the cost of fuel, oil, and maintenance for equipment, plowing trailhead parking lots, grooming labor, or pre-season maintenance on the trails, i.e., rental of brush hog or related equipment. Requests for maintenance reimbursements must be justified.

Prior grant compliance will be one consideration during the evaluation process.
