MassDOT is reminding the public that February 1, 2019 is the application deadline for funding from the Baker-Polito Administration’s MassTrails Program, a competitive funding program which will allow municipal and public entities to expand and connect networks of off-road, shared-use pathways and recreational trails in Massachusetts.
The MassTrails Program will provide a total of approximately $5 million in matching grants through the first round of funding in Fiscal Year 2020 and will also offer technical assistance and resources to individuals, municipalities, non-profits, and other public entities to design, construct, and maintain high-quality Massachusetts trails.
The grants will generally range from $10,000-$100,000, with higher priority projects receiving grants up to $300,000. MassTrails grants can be used for the following purposes: project development, design, engineering, permitting, construction, and maintenance.
The grant application for the MassTrails Program deadline for the first round of applications is February 1, 2019. More information is available on the MassTrails program website and in this MassDOT blog post.
