Connect Kids to Parks Transportation Grant Program

The Connect Kids to Parks Transportation Grant Program is available to K-12 classrooms in Title 1 schools across the state to connect New York public school children with nature and New York State history by providing reimbursement grants to public schools for visits to a New York State park, nature center or historic site, a Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) Environmental Education Center or Fish Hatchery, or the SUNY ESF Adirondack Ecological Center in Newcomb.

Classes may participate in special guided programs at some sites, or self-guided tours. Grants will reimburse bus costs, tolls, the fee for bus entry into the facility and any programs fees, up to $750.

The Connect Kids Transportation Grants Program is administered by NYS Parks in cooperation with Governor Andrew Cuomo’s office and is funded through the NYS Environmental Protection Fund. To learn more and apply for grants, visit the NYS Parks website.
