LINCOLN, Neb. – The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is accepting applications for the Recreational Trails Program for fiscal year 2022 funding.
The Recreational Trails Program is a grant program through the Federal Highway Administration that reimburses political subdivisions, such as communities, counties, natural resources districts, up to maximum of $250,000 or 80% 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 as this is a reimbursable grant program.
This funding source is for both motorized and non-motorized trail projects. It is divided by category: motorized (30% of funding utilized for these projects), non-motorized (30% of funding) and diversified or shared use trail projects (40%).
Applications for RTP grants should be submitted to Game and Parks by Sept. 3, 2021. To apply, go to ngpcgrants.outdoornebraska.gov.
