Recreation Trail Program (RTP) Legislation

    The Recreational Trails Program (RTP) utilizes funds collected from off-road federal gas taxes to pay for trail construction, maintenance and education for both motorized and non-motorized recreation. Our club applies for RTP funds almost every year for maintaining our trail system.

    Bipartisan legislation has again been introduced which requires the Federal Highway Administration to conduct a fuel usage study and increases the funding from the current $84 Million to at least $250 Million. It is estimated that users pay more than $270 Million in federal gas taxes each year on their non-highway vehicles.

    Please contact your Congressman and Senators and ask them to sign on to HR 1864 as a co-sponsor. It won't cost you anything but a little time and it could double or triple the amount of funds available for our trail system.
