Skip Navigation LinksGreenway Compact Grant Program


One of the major principles and objectives of the Greenway Act of 1991 is the development and implementation of a regional compact strategy. To encourage development and implementation of a regional compact strategy, the Act identifies incentives for compact communities which include eligibility in the Greenway Compact Grant Program.

The Compact Grant Program provides 50% matching grants, on a reimbursement basis, for municipalities that develop, approve and implement a regional compact strategy that is consistent with the Greenway criteria and the Greenway Act.  The 50% local match may be provided in the form of an in-kind or other non-monetary contribution.

The Compact development process begins on a regional level - often at the county level - and the Greenway Council will consider funding and technical assistance to develop a regional or countywide Compact.  There are three phases of funding under this grant program: 

  1. Compact development and approval; 
  2. Community Compact adoption; and
  3. Compact implementation.
