48 New Jersey recreational trails benefiting from over $800,000 in 2010 federal aid

48 New Jersey recreational trails benefiting from over $800,000 in 2010 federal aid

An additional $1 million may be available in 2011

More than $800,000 in federal recreational trail grants have been allocated to 48 projects in New Jersey this year, and another $1 million may soon be available for 2011 projects, according to state Environmental Protection Commissioner Bob Martin.

The largest grants totaled $25,000.

Applications for the next round of federal grants are being accepted by the DEP for consideration for funding next year. The federal funds, which are administered by the Department of Environmental Protection's Office of Natural Lands Management, can be used to improve access to open space, enhance environmental resources, create urban and suburban corridors and provide additional hiking, biking and horseback riding opportunities.

"Preserving and enhancing our natural resources and open spaces, and providing affordable recreational opportunities for our residents are priorities of the DEP,'' Martin said. "The quality of life in many New Jersey cities and towns is enhanced by the broad network of trails, which connects the fabric of our communities.''
