About the Recreational Trails Program
The Recreational Trails Program (RTP) is a competitive grant program that offers funding for quality public trail projects throughout New Hampshire. The program is administered by the New Hampshire Department of Resources and Economic Development (DRED), Division of Parks and Recreation, Bureau of Trails. Funding for the program itself is generated from federal gas tax dollars paid on fuel purchases for off highway recreational vehicles and snowmobiles. These funds are appropriated to the states by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) as authorized through Moving Ahead for Progress in the 21st Century (MAP-21). For more information, check out the FHWA Recreational Trails Program website.
