National Parks to receive $53 million in federal-private partner grant

ESTES PARK – Despite a proposed 2018 budget that slashes funds for the national park system, the Trump administration is sending some needed funds in the parks’ direction.

The Department of Interior announced Saturday $53 million for high priority maintenance and infrastructure projects at 42 national parks – including $200,000 for Rocky Mountain National Park.

The funds were allocated to reduce deferred maintenance on the Alluvial Fan Trail, which was devastated by a 2013 flood. In total, the park will receive $400,000, since the Rocky Mountain Conservancy is matching the federal funds with another $200,000.
