Every Kid Outdoors Transportation Grants Program

In partnership with the U.S. Forest Service, the Every Kid Outdoors Transportation Grants Program supports non-profits and schools that are connecting 4th graders with nature, ultimately leading to a nation of outdoor enthusiasts and stewards. This program supports the national “Every Kid Outdoors” initiative, which has the goal of providing an opportunity for every 4th-grade student in the country to visit at least one of the more than 2,000 federally managed lands. COMING IN 2021!
