Overview:

The Local Connection

DCR helps local parks and recreation departments (PDF) through funding, expertise and training. Through this partnership, more than 50,000 acres have been purchased for parks and recreation in more than 400 parks around the state. Since 1967, the department has provided more than $72 million in state funds and channeled more than $61 million in federal funds to local parks. More than $300 million in local matching funds has been generated for local parks.

Virginia Recreational Trails Program (RTP)

The Recreational Trails Program (RTP) is a federal matching reimbursement program for building and rehabilitating trails and trail related facilities. Funds may also be used to acquire land that is part of a trail development project. Federal Highway Administration and Fixing America's Surface Transportation (FAST) Act funds make the program possible and mandate allocations to non-motorized, diversified and motorized trail categories.

Funding may be awarded to city, county, town or other government entities. Registered nonprofit groups partnered with a government body also are eligible. The Recreational Trails Program and Virginia Recreational Trails Program Advisory Committee steer project selections after a competitive call for applications
