Are you interested in learning more about available funding for recreational trails? If so, please join us as Texas Parks & Wildlife Department’s Recreational Trail Program Manager, Andy Goldbloom, discusses the Texas Recreational Trails Grant Program. During this interactive meeting, he will explain the grant program, application process, and answer questions you may have related to trail funding and/or the grant program in general. 

Texas Parks & Wildlife Department's Recreation Grant Programs

“TPWD administers the National Recreational Trails Fund in Texas under the approval of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). This federally funded program receives its funding from a portion of federal gas taxes paid on fuel used in non-highway recreational vehicles. The grants can be up to 80% of project cost with a maximum of $200,000 for non-motorized trail grants and currently there is not a maximum amount for motorized trail grants. Funds can be spent on both motorized and non-motorized recreational trail projects such as the construction of new recreational trails, to improve existing trails, to develop trailheads or trailside facilities, and to acquire trail corridors. Application deadline is February 1st each year.”
