Who Should Apply for Funding?
Municipalities who own and are responsible for their maintenance can apply to the ACCD Dirt, Gravel, and Low Volume Road Program for funding. To be eligible to apply for funding, an official from a municipality must attend a free 2-day training on environmentally sensitive maintenance (ESM) for unpaved roads. Click below for a list of regional ESM training dates and locations.
Ask about travel reimbursements for first-time ESM attendees. Contact Riley Kinney at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
This training begins by explaining some basic environmental principles and then introduces some new techniques and ideas in road maintenance. In most cases, municipal officials are the ones who actually complete the project work, although some prefer to contract it out. Other entities such as the PA Game Commission, County Parks, and others may apply for funding as well.
