Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism (KDWPT)
Grants to Kansas government agencies for the development of recreational trails and other trail-related projects. Funding is intended for the following three project categories: non-motorized, motorized, and multi-use trails. High priority will be given to projects that promote improved ADA and environmental impacts.
A grant may be used for the acquisition of land, trail corridor or long-term lease, or construction of outdoor recreational trails and trail facilities. Development projects may include the building of new facilities or renovation of existing facilities. Only acquisition or development done after federal approval of a grant is eligible for funding. The project must provide a site or facilities for public outdoor recreation.
Support facilities (lighting, utilities, restrooms, parking areas, etc.) may be eligible for assistance, but have low priority for funding. Support facilities are evaluated according to the recreation activities or trails served. Renovation projects will be accepted only for facilities or trails that do not meet current ADA or environmental standards.
Projects meeting other scoring criteria based on the priorities of the SCORP will rank higher. These criteria include: public participation in the formulation of the project proposal; projects serving the needs of special populations; projects involving protection of greenways, open-space, natural areas, riparian areas, wetlands and river corridors; or projects removing barriers from existing recreation areas and facilities. In addition, projects that address one or more of the following—trails, water access, environmental learning facilities or flexible multi-use, multipurpose trails -- will receive extra points.
