The proposals would make changes to programs that disperse between $10 to $12 million a year to improve recreational opportunities across Idaho. Grant-funded projects create and maintain trails for hikers, cyclists and motorized riders, and improve campgrounds, boating facilities, and parks (local and state), among other lasting improvements.
The grant funding comes from gasoline taxes, registration fees, specialty license plates and various federal funding sources.
