New Outdoor Nation Grant Opportunity

Outdoor Nation is starting 2012 with a new funding opportunity for those interested in in connecting young Americans with their waterways through recreational paddling.

Outdoor Nation is accepting applications from individuals between the ages of 18 and 28 and non-profit organizations. Individuals and/or non-profit organizations can be awarded up to $2,500 for submissions that meet the grant requirements.

The top 10 ideas will be awarded funding along with technical support and guidance from The Outdoor Foundation. This funding opportunity supports pioneering projects and initiatives that are youth-developed that result in increased paddling participation.

Projects should reinforce the idea that recreational paddling is one of the most accessible and impactful ways in which young Americans are introduced to the outdoors.

The deadline to apply is February 15, 2012 so apply today! For more information and to submit your application, visit the Outdoor Nation website.
