The District of Columbia Department of Transportation (DDOT) is accepting applications for the Recreational Trails Program. This program, funded through SAFETEA-LU (Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act: A Legacy for Users), makes funds "available to the States to develop and maintain recreational trails and trail-related facilities for both non-motorized and motorized recreational trail uses". Approximately $500,000 in funding is available city-wide annually.
Applications are accepted for trail projects that are supported by the community and further District plans. The District will review applications and provide grants to non-profits or carry out the project in-house using the District's procurement process.
Questions can be sent by email to Heather Deutsch, Bicycle Program Specialist/Trail Planner.
