RTP Advisory Committee Compliance to Receive FY 2012 Apportionments

Attachment 1

States must provide documentation about their FY 2010 Recreational Trail Advisory Committee meeting to be eligible for FY 2011 Recreational Trails Program (RTP) apportionments.

States listed in bold with the date the meeting was held in FY 2011 (between October 1, 2010 and September 30, 2011) have provided sufficient documentation to be eligible for FY 2011 RTP apportionments. The RTP requirement is for at least one meeting with both motorized and nonmotorized user representation. If a State has already provided sufficient documentation for one meeting, it is not required to provide documentation for subsequent meetings within the same Federal fiscal year (although FHWA staff likes to have complete information).

As of September 21, 2011, all 50 States and the District of Columbia have provided sufficient documentation to meet the RTP Advisory Committee requirement in FY 2011, to be eligible to receive FY 2012 RTP apportionments. Only the States in bold have provided sufficient documentation for FY 2011. Additional information is appreciated.
