Maximum Grant Amount

The South Mountain Partnership mini-grant program, administered by the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, will begin accepting pre-applications in April.

The program is designed to stimulate projects that sustain south-central Pennsylvania's sense of place by protecting, promoting, and building on natural, cultural, recreational and agricultural resources.

Grants are intended to focus on the four-county region of Adams, Cumberland, Franklin and York counties.

A 1:1 grant match is required. The match may be cash or non-cash. Non-cash match can include donated materials, professional time, volunteer time, donated land value, and services conducted in-house for which the grantee organization does not receive compensation.

Municipalities, municipal agencies, counties, academic institutions and authorized non-profit organizations are all eligible applicants. Authorized organizations must be both tax-exempt under Section 501(c) 3 of the Internal Revenue Code and registered with the PA Department of State Bureau of Charitable Organizations.

Only applicants with strong pre-applications will be invited to submit a final application by July 31.
