Grants & Cooperative
Grants and Cooperative Agreements Program Overview
The Grants Program supports the planning, acquisition, development, maintenance, administration, operation, enforcement, restoration, and conservation of trails, trailheads, areas, and other facilities associated with the use of off-highway motor vehicles, and programs involving off-highway motor vehicle safety or education.
2015/2016 Grants Program
The two-day workshop, one held in Southern California and one held in Northern California, will be two full-day sessions. Please download the agenda for the information on the workshops.
Applicants may attend one or both days of the OHV Grants Program workshop. Although attendance is not required to participate in the OHV Grants Program, the OHMVR Division encourages applicants to attend, as the workshop provides valuable information.
NOTE: There is a slight change in the agenda for this years’ workshop. Those interested in only law enforcement projects will not need to attend the second day as all the information you need is covered on the first day. Additionally, there are changes to the regulations that will be discussed.
