(INDIANAPOLIS) - Dozens of Indiana counties are hoping to dip into a state grant program that will fund efforts to improve or build hiking and biking trails.

Gov. Eric Holcomb says 42 of Indiana's 92 counties filed applications in the grant program's first round. They're seeking nearly $144 million for more than 240 potential trail miles.

Holcomb says the response "sends a big message that Hoosiers are invested in improving quality of life across the state."

The program is offering $90 million in funding. Up to $20 million for regional projects and $5 million for local projects will be allocated in the program's first round.
