The Division of Parks and Recreation and the State Trails Program are now accepting Pre-Applications for 2014 and 2015 Federal Recreational Trails Program funding. This is a change from previous years, an effort to better align grant awards with the Federal Fiscal Year Budget.
All agencies and non-profit organizations are eligible to apply; a link to an online application is available below. Please complete and submit the online pre-application(s) by November 15th, 2013. At this time the 2014 RTP funding has been authorized at $1.5 million, future funding for 2015 is uncertain pending federal reauthorization of the RTP program. RTP requires a 25 percent match and is a reimbursement grant program.
Should your Pre-Application be selected, your agency or organization will be notified and invited to submit a 2014-2015 Federal Recreational Trails Program Final Application that will be due February 28, 2014.
