A March 1, 2013, deadline for submission of applications to the Federal Recreational Trails program has been set. Notification of awards is tentatively set for June with funds available October 1, 2013.
Both the Iowa House and Senate have included some funding for the State Recreational Trails program in their State Fiscal Year 2014 (SFY 2014) 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 2014, there is a strong possibility there will be funding available for applications submitted by July 1, 2013.
In anticipation of funding becoming available, we will accept project applications according to the existing July 1 application deadline.
