Game and Parks accepting 2017 trail grant applications

LINCOLN, Neb. – The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is accepting Recreational Trail Program grant applications for fiscal year 2017 funding.

The Recreational Trails Program (RTP) is a grant program through the Federal Highway Administration that reimburses political subdivisions, such as communities, counties and natural resources districts, up to 80 percent of project costs for trail acquisition, development, renovation and support facilities. Applicants must have the financial means to undertake and maintain the project and all funding should be on hand.

The RTP funds are divided among three categories: motorized trails (30 percent), non-motorized trails (30 percent) and diversified or shared-use trails (40 percent).

The application materials can be downloaded at http://outdoornebraska.gov/grants/ or contact Kirk Nelson at 402-471-5513 or kirk.nelson@nebraska.gov for an application packet. Applications must be submitted to Game and Parks and postmarked by Sept. 1, 2017.
