RICHMOND — The Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation and the Federal Highway Administration have awarded seven trail projects through the Recreational Trails Program.
The Recreational Trails Program, or RTP, is a federal, matching reimbursement program established to construct and rehabilitate recreational trails and trail-related facilities.
The 2022 projects, representing non-motorized, motorized, and diverse trail uses across the commonwealth, were selected from 22 applications received during an open application process that ended in June. Counties, cities and towns, park and recreation authorities, tribal governments, state agencies, federal agencies and nonprofit organizations are eligible to compete for funding.
