YTA FUNDED PROJECTS
Yavapai Trails Association is supported not only by direct donations, but by forming strong partnerships with other organizations throughout the community. By coming together to work tirelessly to build and maintain the non-motorized trails systems, YTA collaborates with trail user groups (activity based) to become a powerful force. Often times, Grant Writing and Administration requires collaborative efforts with our partners.
Partial funding provided by the Arizona Community Foundation
Yavapai Trails Association has been awarded the grants below
$10,450 Chino Valley Rail-to-Trail (Peavine) Grant Award
Yavapai Trails Association has recently been awarded a generous $10,450.00 Grant from the Arizona Community Foundation to continue trail improvements on the 5.3 mile rail-to-trail segment in the Town of Chino Valley. For the past few years YTA has taken a leadership role in improving this unique trail segment. The grant will allow for the purchase of an informational kiosk, dog waste stations, trail signs at road crossings, trail signs at parking lots (other than the kiosk), trail bed material, another bench, trail tools for the local trail volunteer maintainers, and equestrian friendly gate latches. These trail improvements are intended as a step closer to connecting the Peavine segments into one contiguous gem of a trail. We at YTA continue to advocate and strive for that to happen in the near future. Our communities and partners in Yavapai County are uniting to work toward this common goal. We are thankful for ACF’s generosity in providing the financial means to realize this gem of a trail. YTA is a 501C3 non-profit organization, dedicated to support, advocate, and provide leadership for all non-motorized trails in Yavapai County.
