The Greenway works with communities on a voluntary basis to assist in the development of local land use plans and programs related to the Greenway criteria. The Greenway provides technical assistance and funding for these community planning projects. Greenway community planning projects can be undertaken by a single community to address local issues or a group of communities working together to address both local and regional issues.
Interested communities pass a resolution supporting the Greenway criteria, thereby qualifying them for Greenway technical and financial assistance. Typical grants under the "Greenway Communities Grant Program" range from $5,000 - $10,000, with greater financial assistance available for projects involving two or more municipalities.
