Recreational Trails Program

The Recreational Trails Program is a federally funded competitive grant program that provides financial assistance to agencies of city, county, state or federal governments, and organizations, approved by the state, or state and federally recognized Indian tribal governments, for the development of recreational trails, trailheads and trailside facilities. The program has been shifted from the Office of Greenways and Trails to DEP's Land and Recreation Grants Section within the Division of State Lands.
