“Joining communities through fitness, recreation, heritage and transportation networks”

Tell Congress: Trails Move America

Tell Congress: Trails Move America

Trails Move America

 
For years, communities across the country have depended on the Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery (TIGER) program and other federal funding to build and maintain trails—and connect people to their neighborhoods.
 
But this vital funding is in the crosshairs in Washington. The administration’s budget proposal targets TIGER for elimination—and some in Congress want to eliminate funding for trails altogether.
 
Congress will have the final say on funding levels for TIGER and other programs that help communities build trails. That’s why it’s important that you act now.
 
Write your senators and representative now and tell them that trails move America. Personalized messages are most effective. Tell your elected officials why trails are important to you and your community.
