Webinar – Overcoming Barriers: Innovative Practices to Securing Federal Funding

By: Rails-to-Trails-Conservancy WEBINAR
June 13, 2024

Join the TrailNation Collaborative, powered by Rails to Trails Conservancy (RTC), for an interactive discussion exploring barriers to accessing federal funding for trail and active transportation networks. Participants heard how others in the trails movement have found solutions to common challenges and had a chance to engage directly with their peers through breakouts on barriers and strategies to make the most of current federal funding opportunities.

During this highly interactive 60-minute session, participants heard from Kevin Mills, RTC’s vice president of policy and Gary Toth, former Senior Director of Transportation Initiatives for the Project for Public Spaces, as they delved into the various ways grant applicants can overcome barriers ranging from finding local matching funds to meeting environmental and labor requirements.

This dialogue featured brief presentations and case studies on the subject matter at hand, and was followed by guided discussions to brainstorm ideas, best practices and solutions.
