The grants are being awarded through the Clean Ohio Trails Fund, which works to improve outdoor recreational opportunities for Ohioans, according to an ODNR release. In addition to Greene County, funding will go toward 19 other trail projects in Ashtabula, Clinton, Columbiana, Cuyahoga, Delaware, Franklin, Hamilton, Lorain, Medina, Summit, Warren, and Williams counties.
Sarah Wickham, ODNR’s chief of communications, said priority was given to projects that link to statewide and regional trails, long distance trails, trails that link to other trails and trails that link to communities, community resources and neighborhoods and population centers.
Grant recipients will provide a 25% match for their projects, according to ODNR.
“The Clean Ohio Trails Fund continues to improve access to recreational opportunities for all Ohioans,” Mertz said. “Trails are a safe and fun way for people of all ages and backgrounds to connect with nature.”
Ohioans approved the establishment of the $400 million bond program in 2000. This is the 14th round of funding to be awarded through the Clean Ohio Trails Fund. To date, the fund has awarded more than $93.31 million.
