Please find information below about a grant program to fund multiple use trails.  This is from the Rails-To-Trails Conservancy.

Doppelt Family Trail Development Fund | Rails-to-Trails Conservancy

RTC launched the Doppelt Family Trail Development Fund in 2015 to support organizations and local governments that are implementing projects to build and improve rail-trails.


Montana’s Department of Natural Resources and Conservation (DNRC) is accepting applications for the Montana Public Lands Access Network (MT-PLAN) grant program.

Montana’s DNRC is requesting proposals from private landowners or organizations working with private landowners to acquire public trail and road access easements or enhancement projects across private lands to inaccessible or hard-to-access public lands and waters for recreational purposes. Private donated grant funding will be used to compensate private landowners for easements or enhancement projects. The criteria for selection includes easement term; value; acreage; and compatibility of project with state trust or public lands management agency. DNRC will make recommendations to the State Board of Land Commissioners for approval on a rolling basis beginning in January 2019. For more information please visit the DNRC MT-PLAN website at or call 444-5576.
