Bus grants assist schools and nonprofit organizations with the transportation expenses of field trips and outdoor learning opportunities at Missouri state parks and historic sites.
Bus grants are available to schools and youth-focused nonprofit organizations located in Missouri. Applicants can request up to $500; no match is required. A map of state parks and historic sites is available here.
The purpose of the grant program is to promote natural, cultural, and recreational opportunities at Missouri State Parks and Historic Sites. Missouri State Parks offers busing grants to underwrite the cost of field trips for schools and non-profit organizations in an effort to connect children with nature.
To maximize funding availability statewide, two grants per school district may be awarded during the initial review. Additional applications may be considered after all awards have been made and upon funding availability.
Funding must be used to underwrite the costs of transporting youth (K-12th grade) to a Missouri State Park or Missouri State Historic Site. Information on eligible fieldtrip destinations can be found on the Missouri State Parks website .
Examples of eligible costs include:
- standard mileage for buses or vans owned by a school or organization;
- charter bus costs; and
- wage/salary costs for bus drivers.
Applicants are responsible for making all transportation arrangements. Applicants must contact the state park or historic site to coordinate field trip activities prior to submitting a grant application.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
