PA Organization For Watershed & Rivers Now Accepting Applications For Sojourn Grants

River sojourns are paddling trips that offer both new and experienced paddlers an opportunity connect with our rivers by enjoying outdoor recreation, and learning more about a specific waterway while accompanied by an experienced guide. 
Grants are available on a competitive basis for single and multi-day paddling events on Pennsylvania Rivers. Sojourns must incorporate significant educational programming, and be open to all participants (i.e., private trips are not eligible). 
Applicants can request $900 per day for multi-day sojourns and $500 for a single-day sojourn. 
The PA Sojourn Program is a nationally unique program that awards more than $30,000 in grants across the state to support local organizations and their sojourn events. On average POWR supports between 10 to 15 paddling events under this program. 
Over the years PA Sojourns supported by POWR have encompassed over 500 river miles, for 50+ on-the-water days, offering more than 100 educational programs and engaging over 4,000 people.
POWR, an affiliate of the PA Environmental Council, administers the Pennsylvania Sojourn Program with funding by DCNR.
POWR will no longer be accepting applications via email or mail. All applications must be submitted online. 
To apply, visit the 2020 Sojourn Grants webpage.  Questions should be direct to Angela Vitkoski by sending email to: or call 570-718-6507.
For more information on programs, initiatives, upcoming events and how you can become involved, visit the PA Organization for Watershed and Rivers website.
