The Recreational Trails Program is a $1.5 million grant program funded by Congress with money from the federal gas taxes paid on fuel used by off-highway vehicles. This program's intent is to meet the trail and trail-related recreational needs identified by the Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan. Grant funding is for trail planning, construction, maintenance, signs and related facilities.

The Arts in Education Program provides support to schools and nonprofit organizations to strengthen the use of the arts in pre K-12 settings. We give priority to funding fees for professional artists to work in educational settings and collaborations between arts organizations and schools. Arts in Education grants are not intended to substitute for a school's arts education program and funds cannot be used for permanent arts education personnel.
