The Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act reauthorized the Recreational Trails Program (RTP) for Federal fiscal years 2016 through 2020 as a set-aside of funds from the Transportation Alternatives (TA) Program.

The Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) administers the Recreational Trails Program. Montana's RTP grant applicants (subrecipients) can include federal, state, county or municipal agencies, private associations, and clubs. RTP grants to subrecipients may not exceed 80% of the total of an individual project. After approval of all required documentation, FWP will reimburse the subrecipient for 80% of the actual documented costs incurred. Reimbursement of RTP funds will only be approved for project expenditures incurred after the date of the signed project agreement between the project subrecipient and FWP.


Application Limitations

An organization may submit only one grant application per grant cycle. An application may contain more than one project phase. If the application contains more than one distinct project phase, the applicant must prioritize the phases.

Applicants must provide all information requested and submit the application by 3:00 p.m. on January 31, 2020. Late or incomplete applications will not be considered for funding.
