“Connect Kids to Parks” Field Trip Grant Program

New York has doubled the funding for its Connect Kids to Parks field trip grant program, increasing from $500,000 to $1 million to support more educational visits to state parks, historic sites and public lands.

Governor Cuomo’s office says the Connect Kids to Parks field trip grant program offers state grants to Title 1 public schools to fund field trips for environmental, historical and physical education programming.

So far the program funded nearly 750 field trips, serving nearly 30,000 public school children from Title 1 school districts throughout the state.
