WNYMBA submitted for a Recreational Trails Program (RTP) Grant this past fall in an effort to garner funds for building one of the new Trails at Allegany State Park. While we have one of the three approved trails (the one off of Ridge Run) mostly built, the other two are more remote and could benefit from some contracted construction. The proposal was quite an effort (take a look here). The RTP program is federally available trail building funding that in New York is administered by the State Parks folks.
We unfortunately were not successful in pursuit of the grant. However, we gained great experience, and got some records organized enough to help in our recent solicitations for funds for the Muck Truck, which has been a successful effort.
