Beginning October 27, 2015, American Rivers will accept proposals for the Connecting Communities to Rivers Grant Program. This grant will fund action-oriented projects in Colorado, Idaho, Montana, New Mexico and Wyoming.

Grants will range from $5,000 to $25,000 and eligible projects will connect people to their rivers through recreation; establish a strong sense of river and land stewardship; and have clear and identifiable community, recreation, conservation and economic benefits.

Applications must be received by December 1, 2015. Applicants will be notified of their status in early January 2016.
