As part of the Trail Town Connections Program, the Trail Town Program® is announcing an exciting business signage matching grant program for businesses wishing to upgrade their current signs or create new signs that better fit in with the spirit of the Trail Town Business Sign Design Guide.

Some of these guidelines include:

  • The sign’s material consists of those recommended in the guide, and does not incorporate any of the discouraged materials.
  • The sign project reduces unnecessary signage and/or limits sign clutter (i.e, uses smaller and fewer signs).
  • Proposed lighting provides the lowest level of lighting so as to reduce light pollution.
  • The sign is not a plastic, internally illuminated sign, and in most cases does not include large, bold lettering, flashing lights, neon, etc.
  • The sign is sensitive to unique community characteristics.
  • The sign respects the surrounding environment. For instance, it does not block or obscure views of neighboring businesses, scenic hillsides, ridges, peaks, or forests.

Your new sign should be manufactured by a business within 120 miles of the trail corridor in order to align with the Trail Town Program's value of supporting the local economy. Follow the link for additional program guidelines.

The program is a "cash match" reimbursement: for every dollar you spend, the program will reimburse you one dollar, not to exceed $500 or 50% of total costs per applicant, whichever amount is less.

This program is made possible through the generous support of the Richard King Mellon Foundation.
