Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks announced last week the City of Three Forks is one of 32 trail organizations, communities and various land-managing agencies throughout Montana to receive Montana Trail Stewardship Grant Program (TSP) grant awards for their projects in 2022.

The $54,000 grant will be used on the Headwaters Trail System for Rehab Crack-Sealing and Seal Coat.

The Montana Trail Stewardship Grant Program current awards total approximately $1,476,865.10 in state funds. TSP grant funds are allocated to projects based on meeting TSP eligibility requirements, application scoring, State Trails Advisory Committee (STAC) discussion and recommendations and funding availability.

FWP administers TSP awards, a program funded through a portion of Montana's light motor vehicle registration fee and from the taxation of recreational marijuana. The program provides grant funding for trail and trail-related projects across the state. Eligible projects include development and rehabilitation work on urban, rural, and backcountry trails; construction of community trails; and snowmobile and cross-country ski trail maintenance and grooming operations.
