New Funding Opportunity for Trails?

A bill to create a State Conservation Fund is in the Kansas House this session. HB 2541 would reallocate sales taxes on sporting goods to three sub-funds. A hearing has already been held in the House Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee. The Kansas Outdoors fund, which would provide funding for parks and trails, would receive $6 million annually. Nonprofit trail organizations will be eligible to seek these funds. Trails enthusiasts are urged to contact their state representatives about this bill. You can read more about the status of the bill here.
