Applications Now Being Accepted For PA Sojourn Grants By PA Organization For Watersheds & Rivers

On January 19, the
PA Organization for Watersheds and Rivers announced it is now accepting applications for 2021 PA River Sojourn Grants.  The deadline for applications is March 15.

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.

We will no longer be accepting applications via email or mail. All applications must be submitted online.
