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

On February 1, the
PA Organization for Watersheds and Rivers announced the opening of the 2024 Pennsylvania River Sojourns Grant cycle. The deadline to apply is March 29.

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. 

Grants are available on a competitive basis for single and multi-day paddling events on Pennsylvania’s waterways. 

Sojourns must incorporate significant educational programming, and be open to all participants (i.e., private trips are not eligible). Applicants can request up to $1,000 per on water day.

These grants support on average between 10 and 15 paddling events each year, encompassing over 400 river miles and 50+ on-the-water days, offering more than 100 educational programs, and engaging over 4,000 people.

The Department of Conservation and Natural Resources is the prime sponsor of the program. 

Visit the PEC Grants webpage for more information and to apply.

For more information on programs, initiatives, upcoming events and help available to community-based watershed organizations, visit the PA Organization for Watersheds and Rivers website.  Follow them on Facebook.

POWR, an affiliate of the Pennsylvania Environmental Council, administers the Pennsylvania Sojourn program.
