Grants to Oregon nonprofit organizations and municipal, state, and federal government agencies to enhance recreational trails throughout the State. Applicants must submit an LOI prior to submitting a full proposal. Funding is intended to support the creation, expansion, and improvement of both pedestrian and motorized trails that are accessible to the public and designed for recreational purposes.
RTP grant funding is available to enhance trail opportunities by achieving results that would not otherwise be possible. RTP grants are for projects that are primarily recreational in nature, rather than serving a more utilitarian transportation function. RTP grants typically fund on-the-ground projects, while limited funds are available for educational or trail assessment components. Permissible uses include:
Project uses include pedestrian (hiking, running, and wheelchair access), biking, mountain biking, water trail use, equestrian use, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, off-road motorcycling, all-terrain vehicle riding, four-wheel driving, or using other off-road motorized vehicles. Project selection is mostly informed by the needs identified in Oregon’s 2016-2025 Statewide Recreation Trails Plan.
