Floyd County Fiscal Court Selected for $80,000 Grant from Recreational Trails Program
FRANKFORT, Ky. (October 23, 2018) – The Department for Local Government (DLG) has announced $80,000 in Recreational Trails Program funding for Floyd County Fiscal Court. The grant will help fund the pavement of an existing trail and trailhead at Middle Creek National Battlefield.

The trail, which will be approximately 2,960 feet long, will also have a parking lot for visitors. The project includes trailside facilities such as benches and bike racks.

“Preserving and maintaining Kentucky’s outdoor treasures ensures they will be enjoyed now, and remembered for generations to come.” DLG Commissioner Sandra K. Dunahoo said. “I am pleased that we could invest these funds at this historic, national site, where President James A. Garfield once led Union troops into battle.”

“I am thankful to DLG for these funding dollars to be reinvested in this trail,” Rep. Larry Brown said. “We are reminded that trails serve a dual purpose. They promote recreation and showcase Kentucky history. I look forward to seeing the impact this trail improvement will have on visitors and area residents.”

The Recreational Trails Program is funded by the U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (FHWA). The funds are administered by the Department for Local Government, an arm of the Office of the Governor dedicated to supporting local officials and communities, to selected grant applicants for the creation and development of recreational trails.
