Grants to Oregon nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and tribal governments to enhance public recreational areas and facilities. 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.
The Recreational Trails Program (RTP) is a federally funded grant program administrated by the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department. Since 1993, Oregon has funded over 500 projects with RTP funds to develop, improve, or expand motorized and non-motorized trails and their facilities.
RTP grant funds are intended to provide, expand, and improve public recreational trails for both motorized and non-motorized trail users. 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.
The intent for RTP grant funding is 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 (policies 2.3-2.3C).
