TPW Commission Approves Five Trail Grants

AUSTIN, Texas — The Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission approved funding Nov. 3 for five National Recreational Trail Grant projects totaling $402,750.

This new round of grants stems from additional federal funding that has become available since an initial $2 million in trail-building funds was awarded by TPWD in August.

Recreational Trail grants are approved based on the recommendations of the Texas Trails Advisory Board. They are funded by a portion of the federal gas tax generated by gasoline purchases to utilize off-road recreational vehicles, such as off-road motorcycles and four-wheelers.

The purpose of the National Recreational Trails Fund is to provide funding for projects that create new and maintain existing motorized and non-motorized recreational trails.

The recipients are listed below:
