The Greenways Foundation is accepting grant applications for the year 2020 until November 15, 2020. It is important to note that grant applications are reviewed on a first-in, first-out basis. For 2020, we have grant funds totaling $40,000 with a maximum of $10,000 per applicant. The grant application and instructions are located by clicking on the links on the right side of this page.
The Butler, Fairman & Seufert 2020 Greenways Foundation Trails Grant Program is funded entirely by the proceeds received through our Indiana BMV specialty license plate. Please consider purchasing a Greenways Foundation plate to show your support for trails and greenways when you renew your tags, and help us to market our plate program on your Facebook page/web site. If you already are a supporter, thank you.
In addition to the general trails funding through the grant program, The Greenways Foundation is offering “start-up” grants in 2020 for those interested in establishing a Not-For-Profit Trail Group. Interested applicants can apply for a grant up to $1,000.00 to cover the IRS application fee to become a not-for-profit 501(c) (3) organization.

The Greenways Foundation Grant Review Committee will review your grant request and if additional information is required to make a determination, the committee will be in contact as soon as possible. Once the committee has reviewed your grant application it will go to the Greenways Foundation Board of Directors for final approval/disapproval. You will be notified of the results immediately. Grant requests normally take 60 days to review and notification of the results announced.
The Greenways Foundation is a charitable trust working to promote the growth, enhancement and use of Indiana greenways and blueways. Our goal is to assist communities throughout the state of Indiana in realizing the economic, social and health benefits of trails. Many counties in Indiana have begun to build trails and have seen first-hand the benefits to having trails in their own backyard; however, there are still counties that have not yet begun. We hope to change that with our grants program, which has been in place since 2012.
