Recreational Trails Aids (RTA) Program


This is a federal program administered in all states. Municipal governments and incorporated organizations are eligible to receive reimbursement for development and maintenance of recreational trails and trail-related facilities for both motorized and non-motorized recreational trail uses. Eligible sponsors may be reimbursed for up to 50 percent of eligible project costs. Funds from this program may be used in conjunction with funds from the state snowmobile or ATV grant programs and Knowles-Nelson Stewardship development projects.    

Eligible applicants

Municipal governments and incorporated organizations whose primary purpose is trails or trail usage can apply for this funding.

Eligible projects

Maintenance or restoration of existing trails
Development or rehabilitation of trailside/trailhead facilities and trail linkages
Construction of new trails
Property acquisition for trails

Deadlines

Applications are typically due on May 1 each year.

Application materials

Because these grants are often coupled with grants from the Knowles-Nelson Stewardship Program, RTA grant application materials appear in the same booklet as

Stewardship Local Assistance grant application materials.
