Non-Motorized Trails Grant Program
The availability of funding for the Non-Motorized Trail Grants will be based on the funding levels provided by the funding sources. Availability of funds for successful applicants may vary due to legislative processes, fiscal year parameters and/or written authorization of spending authority. Awarded funds are for 2 to 2 1/2 years. Depending on the source of awarded funds, contracts may be sent out for signature authority from May through August of a grant cycle. Please consider this when planning your projects and timelines.
The non-motorized trail grant selection process follows a three-tiered recommendation and approval process. Applications are first scored and evaluated by State Trails Subcommittee members, volunteer outside reviewers and trails program staff, who rank the applications in an order of recommended funding priorties. The ranked applications are submitted to the State Trails Committee which evaluates and recommends projects to the Parks and Wildlife Commission and Great Outdoor Colorado Board for final approval.
State Trails staff and grant reviewers cannot comment on the status of a grant application until the evaluation and scoring process is completed.
