PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - State Parks Director Doug Hofer says there are grants available for trail projects.

The funding is available for projects sponsored by municipalities, counties and tribal governments, among other government entities.

Hofer says trails are key to promoting healthy communities. He says they are safe corridors for recreation and exercise that give families the opportunity to spend time together.

The grants are from the Recreation Trails Program. The program offers partial reimbursement for trail projects that are approved.

Potential projects eligible for the grant program include constructing new public trails and rehabilitating trails that exist now.

The application deadline is April 15.
