Applications for the 2013 Appalachian Trail License Plate Grant Program are being accepted until Monday, Jan. 21, 2013. The Appalachian Trail Conservancy will award a total of $10,000 for a broad range of Trail-related projects in Tennessee. These funds are generated from the sales and renewals of Tennessee Appalachian Trail specialty license plates.
The ATC is seeking individuals and partner organizations, including Trail clubs, schools, botanists and ecologists, environmental and conservation groups and civic organizations, to submit applications for this grant program. Projects can be related to the physical Trail and its facilities; major public-service projects; the enhancement of Trail clubs’ long-term trail management abilities; natural heritage and environmental monitoring; education and outreach; and Appalachian Trail Community partnerships.
