Today’s announcement marks the fourth round of Clean Ohio Trails Grants, with a total of $25 million going to local trail projects over four years through the Clean Ohio Program.
The program was initiated by Governor Taft and approved by voters in November 2000. Each Clean Ohio Trail Grant requires a minimum 25 percent match with local funds.
The Clean Ohio initiative provides community-directed investments for revitalizing urban areas, protecting rivers and watersheds, preserving green space and farmland, and expanding Ohio’s system of recreational trails.
To date, a total of almost $285 million has been allocated to Clean Ohio Fund projects, including the Clean Ohio Trails Fund.
