|Total to States||1,390,830,315||-61,619,734.97||1,329,210,580||1,101,196,927||79.18%||82.85%|
Federal-aid Transfers (23 U.S.C. 126)
States may transfer Federal-aid highway program funds among Federal-aid categories under 23 U.S.C. 126 (HTML / PDF). These transfers are not included in the apportionments listed in the Table above. States could transfer RTP funds from FY 1998 through 2012.
Funds transferred to the RTP become RTP funds for the purpose of obligation: this may result in an obligation rate greater than 100 percent. Funds transferred from the RTP are no longer available for obligation under the RTP. Use the transfer figures below to calculate the true obligation rate.
* For example: Tennessee transferred Transportation Enhancement (TE) funds to the RTP in several years: FY 2000: $448,112 / FY 2001: $661,701 / FY 2002: $790,617 / FY 2003: $225,547 / FY 2007: $100,000 / FY 2008: $277,778 / TOTAL: $2,503,755. After accounting for these transfers: Tennessee's funds available before rescissions would be $17,568,200; obligation rate of 107.72%. Tennessee's funds available after rescissions would be $16,900,965.83; obligation rate of 112.71%.
Other States also have transferred funds to or from the RTP.

The Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act of 1991 (ISTEA) established the National Recreational Trails Funding Program as a formula allocation program, subject to annual appropriations. Funds were provided in FY 1993, 1996, and 1997 through FHWA's administrative funds. Puerto Rico only met eligibility requirements in FY 1993. There were no funds available in FY 1994 or 1995.
The Transportation Equity Act for the 21st Century (TEA-21) established the Recreational Trails Program (RTP) as a formula apportioned program with contract authority for FY 1998-2003.
