The MTSGP was authorized by Senate Bill 24 in the 2019 Legislative Session. Funding for the program comes from $1.37 of Montana’s $9.00 light vehicle registration fee. Each cycle, the program targets funding 30% motorized projects, 30% non-motorized projects, and 40% diversified projects (projects serving multiuse trails).

Eligible funding areas include:

  • New trail and shared-use path construction;
  • Rehabilitation and maintenance of existing trails and shared-use paths, including grooming of trails for motorized and nonmotorized winter recreation; and
  • Construction and maintenance of trailside and trailhead facilities, including but not limited to bridges, fencing, parking, bathrooms, latrines, picnic shelters, interpretation, trail signs, and trailside weed management.
