Recreational Trails Program grant application period starts earlier this year
(Anchorage, AK) – The timeline and associated deadlines for Recreational Trails Program (RTP) grant applications are shifting a few weeks earlier this year.
RTP grants provide reimbursable, matching funds to develop and repair recreational trails and trail-related facilities for both non-motorized and motorized recreational trail uses. Grants are also available for trail-related environmental protection, safety, and educational projects.
The Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation has adjusted the grant application period to provide for a more efficient process. The new timeline is as follows:
- All application and informational documents will be available at http://dnr.alaska.gov/parks/
grants/trails.htm on or before July 15;
- Applicants must begin public outreach on their proposed projects by September 15;
- Grant applications must be submitted by October 15.
