To receive a Trails Manitoba Grant of $75,000, the applicant must have secured a matching investment (can be a combination of funds and/or in-kind gifts) of $150,000. In this example, total project cost would equal $225,000. One dollar (Grant funding) for every two dollars raised/secured for the project.
Maintenance includes pruning, repairing holes, trail beautification, normal erosion/drainage repairs, clean-up, usual repairs (signage, barriers, fencing, surfacing) and other maintenance tasks that are undertaken for upkeep of a trail.
If being used to help offset the matching ratio, volunteer hours should be translated to a dollar amount that is reasonable for the work being performed. Justification and details (for the $ amount) must be included with the application to be used as an offset.
Grant applications solely for trail maintenance may receive greater flexibility with regards to matching requirements. Maintenance Grants will be prioritized based on location (rural vs. urban) and available support (i.e. city based funding for trail maintenance).
