WEDNESDAY, SEPT. 9
Finding Money for Your Trail
You’ve got your vision for the perfect trail or maybe you have already built it. Either way, there’s always a need for funding. Learn from three panelists well-versed in public and private trail funding. Panelists will include representatives from State and Federal Recreational Trail program, Iowa’s most popular funding source, regional planning agencies who administer access to a more localized pool of dollars, and staff from one of Iowa’s leading foundations who will share guidance for working with major donors, private foundations and corporations.
