Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division announces grant workshop January 9-10

California State Parks’ Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) Division invites entities that provide off-highway vehicle (OHV) recreation opportunities to a two-day grant workshop in Bakersfield on January 9-10. In-person and virtual opportunities will be available. Participants will be informed on the various motorized grants available and how to apply for them.  

The workshop is being hosted by OHMVR Division’s Grants and Cooperative Agreements Program (Grants Program). The program began in the early 1970s and has provided over $769 million to agencies and organizations that develop, maintain, operate, expand, support, or contribute to environmentally friendly, well-managed, and high-quality OHV recreation areas, roads, and trails. Also, the program seeks to responsibly maintain the wildlife, soils, and habitat of project areas in a manner that will sustain long-term OHV recreation.

Eligible applicants include cities and counties, the U.S. Forest Service, the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, other federal agencies, federally and state-recognized Native American Tribes, educational institutions, nonprofit organizations, state agencies, districts, and certified community conservation corps.
