Recreational Trails Program (RTP)

The Recreational Trails Program (RTP) is funded by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and administered by the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission. This fund is made possible by a portion of the Federal motor fuel excise tax paid by users of off-road recreational vehicles such as snowmobiles, all-terrain vehicles, off-road motorcycles and off-road light trucks.

This fund is specifically for land acquisition for motorized or non-motorized trails, motorized or non-motorized trail development, trail-related support facilities and maintenance of both motorized and non-motorized trails.

Due to previous funding commitments, Recreational Trails Program applications will not be accepted for the 2020 application cycle. We expect funding will be available for RTP and will be accepting applications in 2021. We apologize for any inconvenience.
