CALL TO ACTION – TRAILS FUNDING UNDER ATTACK IN CONGRESS

TAP

“The Transportation Alternatives Program (TAP) is the largest dedicated source of funding for trails, and walking and biking infrastructure in America. But this critical program is coming under attack in Congress.

Reps. Sam Johnson (Tex.) and Vicky Hartzler (Mo.) have introduced a bill that would eliminate TAP. This isn’t the first attack on this vital funding—and it certainly won’t be the last as Congress works to create the next transportation bill.”

— Rails-to-Trails Conservancy

Please click here to contact your senator and representatives and keep the TAP funding available for important active transportation projects like the East Coast Greenway!

Examples of recently highlighted East Coast Greenway trail sections developed with TAP funding include:

  • Timucuan Trail, Northern FL

  • Overseas Heritage Trail, FL Keys

  • Jones Falls Trail, Baltimore, MD

  • Tobacco Heritage Trail, Southside VA

  • Virginia Capital Trail, Richmond VA

Please take action by signing the petition and sharing it on Facebook and retweeting it on Twitter.

For the love of trails, thank you.
