Short Description
AS of SFY18 no longer an IDOT program, federal funds will go directly to IDNR, per Mike Brand 10/10/2107. The Recreational Trails Program (RTP) is an assistance program of the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) which provides funds to the States to develop and maintain recreational trails and trail-related facilities for both non-motorized and motorized recreational trail uses. In Illinois, the RTP is co-administered by IDOT and IDNR. IDOT secures the funding and seeks federal reimbursement for project expenditures. IDNR processes and awards grants for locally sponsored RTP projects and also self-sponsors projects, usually within state parks.
