Grants to Colorado municipalities, counties, and special park and recreation districts for trail construction projects that aim to increase access to the outdoors in communities across the state. Applicants must email the Program Manager to discuss eligibility prior to receiving a Concept Paper. Funding is intended to address existing gaps in trails or trail networks, construct new trail systems in high demand, and provide increased access for youth and families to existing parks, open spaces, natural areas, and environmental education opportunities. Funding is available primarily for trail construction, although land acquisitions may be considered with staff approval.
GOCO’s Connect Initiative will help increase access to the outdoors in Colorado communities by filling trail gaps and providing better walkable and bikeable access for youth and families. Projects that present an exciting opportunity to leverage partnerships and outside funding, connect important trail segments, and are shovel-ready may score more competitively. There is no requirement for surface type.
GrantWatch ID#: 179673
The maximum Connect Initiative grant request is $2 million. GOCO will not fund more than 75% of the total project cost.
Successful applicants shall have three years from the award date to complete the proposed projects and submit final documentation.
