​​​​AUSTIN – The Texas Parks and Wildlife Commission (TPWC) approved $3.46 million dollars in grants to enhance 22 motorized and nonmotorized recreational trail-related projects across the state.

The National Recreational Trails Fund (NRTF) supports recreational trail construction, renovation, and acquisition. The grants are funded from a portion of the federal gas tax generated by gasoline purchases for off-road motorcycles and four-wheelers.

Of the total NRTF grants, 30 percent must be earmarked for motorized recreational trails, and another 30 percent must be spent on nonmotorized trail projects. The remaining 40 percent is discretionary.​​
