Supporting funding of the Recreational Trails Program

Hosted by

The Coalition for Recreational Trails is working with American Trails and Members of Congress, the Federal Highway Administration, and the outdoor recreation community to continue the Recreational Trails Program as part of Reauthorization of federal surface transportation funding.

xxx See current news on reauthorization of the RTP funding



The Senate transportation bill, "Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century" (MAP-21), eliminates dedicated funding for trails and bike/ped projects but maintains eligibilty for Recreational Trails, Enhancements, Scenic Byways, and Safe Routes to School. Read more about the Senate bill...

February 10, 2012 - Two amendments are proposed to restore funding for trails and bike/ped programs in the Senate transportation bill. The Rails-to-Trails Conservancy has put together two letters of support for amendments to the Senate transportation bill (also known as MAP-21) that will support these vital programs.

The Klobuchar amendment to MAP-21, which restores dedicated funding for the Recreational Trails Program (RTP). This amendment makes the Senate bill consistent with language that is already in the House bill. Download letter to send to your Senators supporting this amendment...

The Cardin/Cochran amendment provides protection to TE and Safe Routes by passing much of the decision making down to the local level. Download letter to send to your Senators supporting this amendment...

xxx Rails-to-Trails Conservancy has written a national organizational sign-on letter in support of each of these amendments. To join the many groups supporting either or both amendments, please respond to by 10:00 am (EST) February 13 and indicate your support for 1) just Cardin/Corchran or 2) just Klobuchar or 3) BOTH.


American Trails and partners in the Coalition for Recreational Trails are urging trail supporters to voice their support for dedicated funding for the RTP. Tell your Senators to support Recreational Trails funding, a user-pay/user-benefit program, in the Senate transportation bill (MAP-21).

The RTP is one of the most effective programs of the transportation bill, providing small grants to groups and organizations nationwide to improve trails and greenways. The RTP positively affects the economy by:

Recent action

During January 2012 trail and bike/ped supporters were asked to contact members of the House Transportation & Infrastructure Committee to urge support for dedicated funding for Enhancements and Safe Routes to School programs. That measure failed...

During April and May of 2011 we were asking supporters to contact their member of the U.S. House of Representatives to sign on to Rep. Petri’s and Michaud’s "Dear Colleague" letter supporting the continuation of the RTP in the upcoming surface transportation bill. We were pleased to have 499 groups and agencies signed on in support of RTP at that crucial time.


The Recreational Trails Program (RTP) was created by the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA), reauthorized in 1998 as part of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21), and reauthorized again in 2005 through the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA-LU).


Support the Recreational Trails Program! Join our efforts with the Coalition for Recreational Trails to get RTP funding included in the next transportation bill and sign on to the letter supporting RTP. Will your state's trails program survive? See Concerns about the future of the Recreational Trails Program.
