FY 2016 Appropriation

The Trails Program is primarily a federal pass-through grant program which helps meet the increasing demands for linear parks and trail development by providing matching funds to local communities. The funding is used for the acquisition and development of recreational trails and trail crossings, without obligating the state government to operate or maintain these facilities. The Recreational Trails Advisory Council makes recommendations to the board and the division regarding the program.

The National Recreational Trails portion of this program is funded through the Federal Highway Administration. The money is to be used for creation of non-motorized trails. The division acts as an intermediary by passing the funds through to qualifying public entities.
