The Grants and Cooperative Agreements Program (Grants Program) provides for well managed off-highway vehicle recreation in the State of California by providing financial assistance to cities, counties, districts, federal agencies, state agencies, educational institutions, federally or state recognized Native American Tribes, Certified Community Conservation Corps and nonprofit entities.

2021 (G21) Grants and Cooperative Agreements Workshop

Hello from the Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) Division!  

Can you believe it is that time again – time to prepare for the 2021 (G21) Grants and Cooperative Agreements Program (Grants Program) grant cycle? This year we are trying something new- a two-day VIRTUAL workshop. 

The virtual workshop will bring all our Applicants and/or Grantees together in one workshop and gives you, the virtual attendee, flexibility to attend the sessions that are an interest to you.  Although attendance is not required to participate in the Grants Program, the OHMVR Division encourages applicants to attend, as the workshop provides valuable information.  

Please see the Save the Date. Information on how to register for the virtually workshop and workshop agenda will be coming soon.  

NOTE: Regulation binders will not be distributed this year. Once finalized, G21 regulations will be available for download off the Grants webpage. 

Feel free to email ohv.grants@parks.ca.gov should you have any questions and someone will get back to you. 

We hope to “see” you in January!
