BRC Seeking RTP Support

The Recreational Trails Program (RTP) provides vital funding for our trails. As remarkably successful as RTP has been, right now there is a very real threat that this program could disappear by the end of 2009 unless we all band together and take action. The BlueRibbon Coalition is working side by side with all the members of the Coalition for Recreational Trails (CRT) to educate legislators about RTP. We need your help in this effort to ensure the RTP is part of the next highway bill.

As a member of the CRT, BlueRibbon is asking every one of its member clubs and organizations to lend their shoulder to this task. Letters are being sent and calls made by the CRT to Congressional members and key members of the administration. As of June, 186 organizations have signed on in support of our letters and calls. CRT would like to have over 500 organizations signed on. BRC has enough member organizations to meet and even exceed that goal. Here is where your organization can really make a difference. Please help by signing on using the form on our website at
