Montana State Parks Recreation Grants
Montana State Parks administers the Recreational Trails Program (RTP), a federally funded grants program that supports Montana’s trails. The RTP funds come from the Federal Highway Trust Fund, and represent a portion of the motor fuel excise tax collected from nonhighway recreational fuel use: fuel used for off-highway recreation by snowmobiles, all-terrain vehicles, off-highway motorcycles, and off-highway light trucks.
