Funded through the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources and administered by WeConservePA, these Regional Trail Workshop Grants are awarded each year to support high-quality educational programming and safety training directly related to trails and greenways.

These grants are made possible through funds granted through the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). FHWA provides funds to states to develop and maintain recreational trails and trail-related facilities for motorized and non-motorized recreational trail uses. The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) has been designated as the state agency responsible for administering this federal program in Pennsylvania.
