Grants typically ranging from $5,000 to $10,000 to New York communities for regional development and conservation intitiatives in the Hudson River Valley, which includes Albany, Bronx, Columbia, Dutchess, Greene, New York, Orange, Putnam, Rensselaer, Rockland, Saratoga, Ulster, Washington and Westchester Counties.

The goal of the grant program is to establish a voluntary regional compact to further the five criteria of:

-Natural and cultural resource protection
-Conservation and management of renewable natural resources
-Regional planning
-Economic development & public access
-Heritage education

Apart from these five criteria, each Compact area will develop a regional planning compact that addresses the incorporation of provisions to identify development of regional impact and areas of regional concern and identification of necessary public facilities and infrastructure.

The Compact development process begins on a regional level - often at the County level - and the Greenway Council will consider funding and technical assistance to develop a regional or countywide Compact.

There are three phases of funding under this grant program:

1) Compact development and approval- Available for County and/or regional compact development and approval on the County and/or regional level.
2) Community Compact adoption- Available for reimbursements related to assisting member municipalities (cities, towns, villages) in becoming Greenway Compact Communities.
3) Compact implementation- Available for implementation of the approved regional compact by a member municipality.

Inter-municipal collaboration projects that involve two or more municipalities will rate higher than single-community projects.
