Grants to Idaho nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and Indian Tribes to support recreational trails and related projects. Applicants must consult with their regional specialist in developing an application. Qualifying projects must be based on trail plans that are referenced or included in a Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan required by the Land and Water Conservation Fund Act (Section 1302 (a)(b)).
Permissible uses of the funds are: maintenance and restoration of existing recreational trails; development and rehabilitation of trailside and trailhead facilities and trail linkages for recreational trails; purchase and lease of recreational trail construction and maintenance equipment; and construction of new recreational trails (with restrictions for new trails on Federal lands).
At least 30 percent (30%) of funds received annually by the State must be reserved for uses relating to motorized recreation, at least 30 percent (30%) must be reserved for non-motorized recreation, and the remaining 40 percent (40%) must give preference to projects that provide for innovative recreational trails corridor sharing by motorized and non-motorized use.
To provide more flexibility in project selection, the Federal Highway Administration established five categories to account for the 30-30-40 requirements:
-Non-motorized project for a single use: A project primarily intended to benefit only one user mode of non-motorized recreational trail use, such as pedestrian only or equestrian only.
-Non-motorized diverse use project: A project primarily intended to benefit more than one mode of non-motorized recreational trail use such as; walking, bicycling, and skating; both pedestrian use in summer and cross-country ski use in winter.
-Diverse use project including both motorized and non-motorized uses: A project intended to benefit both motorized and non-motorized recreational trail use. This category includes projects where motorized and non-motorized uses are separated by season.
-Motorized single use project: A project primarily intended to benefit only one mode of motorized recreational use, such as snowmobile trail grooming.
-Motorized diverse use project: A project primarily intended to benefit more than one mode of motorized recreational use, such as: motorcycle and ATV use; or ATV use in summer and snowmobile use in winter.
