CRT ANNUAL ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS

Urban Trail

Awards are presented every year for
outstanding representative RTP projects.

American Trails and organizations across the country are working together as the Coalition for Recreational Trails to build awareness and understanding of the Recreational Trails Program, to support its effective implementation, and to help ensure that it receives adequate funding. The Annual Achievement Awards are part of the Coalition's ongoing effort to promote and celebrate this highly successful program, which has greatly enhanced the quantity and quality of trail experiences available to the public. Read more about the mission and the members of the Coalition for Recreational Trails...

The Recreational Trails Program

The Recreational Trails Program (RTP) of the Department of Transportation's Federal Highway Administration provides funds to the States to develop and maintain recreational trails and trail-related facilities for both nonmotorized and motorized recreational trail uses. RTP funds come from the Federal Highway Trust Fund, and represent a portion— less than one third— of the motor fuel excise tax paid into the Trust Fund from nonhighway recreational fuel use. Since 1993, more than 22,000 RTP-funded projects have been funded nationwide and are documented on the RTP database: www.recreationaltrailsinfo.org. The RTP leverages hundreds of millions of dollars of additional support from other sources for trails, encourages productive cooperation among trail users, and facilitates healthy outdoor recreation and economic activity across America.

For more information on the Recreational Trails Program, see the Federal Highway Administration RTP website.
