The Recreational Trails Program in Florida
The Recreational Trails Program (RTP) is a federally funded competitive grant program that provides financial assistance to agencies of city, county, state or federal governments, and organizations, approved by the State, or state and federally recognized Indian tribal governments, for the development of recreational trails, trailheads and trailside facilities. The program has been shifted from OGT to the FDEP Office of Operations, Land and Recreation Grants.

For more information on Florida's Recreational Trails Program, view the Recreational Trails Program Fact Sheet (pdf 40 kb) and view Chapter 62S-2, Florida Administrative Code (pdf 109 kb), the rule governing the program in Florida.

A copy of the list is available for viewing here; if an applicant is not listed, the project was considered ineligible for funding at this time.
