AMERICAN MOTORCYCLIST MARCH 2020
Trail grants available
Forest Improvements Targeted
The AMA has joined with a broad spectrum of trail advocacy organizations in a joint project with the U.S. Forest Service to improve both motorized and nonmotorized trails in national forests.
Any project that meets national quality standards will qualify for consideration, including:
Clearing and brushing
Structure repair or replacement
Replacement or installation of trail signs
The program originated in a partnership between the Forest Service and the National Wilderness Stewardship Alliance. It is administered collaboratively by the AMA, the Back Country Horsemen of America, the International Mountain Biking Association, the American Hiking Society and American Trails.
Grants are intended for summer use trails, to cover either newly identified or deferred maintenance needs.
Any nonprofit organization is eligible and should have a sponsored volunteer agreement or other agreement with the local Forest Service office for work under these grants.
