In fall of 2005, PSSA’s Executive Committee met to layout a vision for “growing the sport of snowmobiling in Pennsylvania”.
The following year, PSSA presented a proposal to the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation & Natural Resources (DCNR) that outlined this vision of a viable snowmobile trail system featuring quality trail maintenance, mapping, grooming, and signage throughout the Commonwealth.
The ability to fund snowmobile clubs’ small statewide trail maintenance and improvement projects in a timely manner was viewed as a critical component of the Association’s planning to make that vision a reality.
The Mini-Grant Program, subsequently funded by DCNR and initiated in 2006, is the first step toward meeting that need. PSSA has awarded close to $450,000 to 25 clubs for 130 projects since 2006. These mini-grants aid with the cost of grooming, trail maintenance, and construction.
Subsequent grants PSSA has obtained from DCNR to assist legally constituted snowmobile clubs in Pennsylvania with mini-grants are: in 2010 – $160,000; in 2012 – $80,000; in 2013 – $160,000; and in 2014 – $80,000; 2015 – $80,000.
