Trail Funding Workshop
Date: Oct 10, 2019
Time: 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Join us as we learn more about the ODNR Clean Ohio Trails Fund and ODOT’s Transportation Alternative’s Program.
The Clean Ohio Trails Fund works to improve outdoor recreational opportunities for Ohioans by funding trails for outdoor pursuits of all kinds. Special emphasis is given to projects that:
- are consistent with the statewide trail plan;
- complete regional trail systems and links to the statewide trail plan;
- link population centers with outdoor recreation areas and facilities;
- involve the purchase of rail lines linked to the statewide trail plan;
- preserve natural corridors;
- provide links in urban areas to support commuter access and provide economic benefit.
D’Juan Hammonds, Program Manager of the Office of Real Estate at ODNR, will be explaining the Clean Ohio Trails Fund purpose, eligible projects, and how to apply.
The Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) provides funds for projects that advance non-motorized transportation facilities, historic transportation preservation, and environmental mitigation and management activities. ODOT encourages adding alternatives to planned transportation projects rather than stand-alone projects. TAP funded activities must be accessible to the general public or targeted to a broad segment of the general public.
Jeff Shaner, Program Administrator for the Ohio Department of Transportation, will be giving an overview of the TAP program.
