Federal and state recreational trails

Program manager

Both the Iowa House and Senate have included some funding for the State Recreational Trails (SRT) program in their State Fiscal Year 2016 (SFY 2016) appropriations bills. Discussions in Conference Committee will now need to take place to resolve the differences in those bills. While these events do not guarantee funding of the SRT program for SFY 2016, there is a strong possibility there will be funding available for applications submitted by July 1, 2015. In anticipation of funding becoming available, we will accept project applications according to the existing July 1 application deadline.
