The Coalition for Recreational Trails is a federation of all of the major national and regional organizations that support trails. The members of the CRT work together to build awareness and understanding of the RTP, to support its effective implementation, and to help ensure that it receives adequate funding. The CRT is assisted by the American Recreation Coalition.
The Recreational Trails Program, first established in 1991 and then reauthorized as part of the Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21), returns a portion of federal gasoline taxes generated by non-highway recreation to the states for trail-related purposes. The RTP is administered by the Federal Highway Administration. The funding has become the foundation for state trails programs in every state, making an investment of nearly $50 million a year in trails and greenways that benefit all Americans.
