The Hudson River Waterfront Walkway and the East Coast Greenway are two local projects that have received federal recreational trails grants, the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) announced yesterday.

Across the state, more than $800,000 in grant money was allocated to 48 projects. The federal funds, which are administered by the DEP's Office of Natural Lands Management, can be used to improve access to open space, enhance environmental resources, create urban and suburban corridors and provide additional hiking, biking and horseback riding opportunities.
