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; the enhancement of Trail clubs’ long-term A.T. management abilities; natural heritage and environmental monitoring; education and outreach; Appalachian Trail Community™ partnerships;
Grant funds must be spent in North Carolina. Individual grant requests should not exceed $5,000.
Twenty dollars from each license plate is returned to the ATC to support its work in the state. Last year, A.T. license plate sales in North Carolina generated approximately $115,000, helping support the grant program, the ATC’s land acquisition efforts and the work of its Southern Regional Office located in Asheville, North Carolina.
