Applications are due Friday, March 7, 2014 by 5 p.m. Federal, state, city and county governments, special governmental districts, trail organizations and private individuals are potentially eligible for the grants.

Previous projects have included the development of the Nevada Outdoor School Outdoor Ethics Training Program, Spring Mountain trails, and the Peavine mountain bike trail.
