The Nevada Division of State Parks has approximately $214,000 in grant funds available for motorized recreational trails projects. These funds from the Recreational Trails Program of the Federal Highway Administration are for motorized projects only. Applications are due Friday, Jan. 31, by 5 p.m.

Federal, state, city and county governments, special governmental districts, trail organizations and private individuals are potentially eligible for the grants.

“This is a great opportunity to create or improve trails so more people can get out and appreciate

Nevada’s natural beauty,” said Eric Johnson, administrator of Nevada State Parks.

The 2013 grants manual and application packages are available at www.parks.nv.gov or at the Division of State Parks office, at 901 S. Stewart Street, Suite 5005, Carson City, NV 89701. All National Environmental Policy Act requirements must be met before submitting an application.
