Funding Opportunity for 4th Graders

Over the past year the Connect Kids Field Trip Refund Grant program enabled over 30,000 school children to connect with the outdoors (and history) by refunding field trip expenses to State lands. For many students from Title 1 schools lacking field trip budgets, this was a first. The grant gave children the opportunity to play on a playground for the first time, take a guided Park hike, or attend a program at a local historic site.

Eligibility Requires:
-Any school in a NYS district with at least one Title 1 school
-Advantage and 21st Century afterschool programs
-Municipal youth bureaus and recreation facilities
-Refund amount up to $1,000/grant
