Contingency List (Operation and Maintenance) -- Grants Program 2016/2017

The California Department of Parks and Recreation, Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) Division announces its Contingency List (Operations and Maintenance) for the 2016/2017 Grants and Cooperative Agreements grant cycle.

As allowed in Public Resource Code section 5090.50(b)(1)(D), any unencumbered funds under the Operations and Maintenance category may be used in future grant cycles for purposes consistent with this category. The OHMVR Division established this list through the competitive 2016/2017 grant cycle process and are projects that fell below the grant funding availability as published in the 2016/17 Final Awards.

Projects on this list may be awarded during the duration of this list as funds become available from the G14 grant cycle. Upon the availability of funds, projects will be funded in order of score until all funds are exhausted. This list expires at 5:00pm Pacific Time on January 5, 2018.

If funding becomes available for any project(s) within this list and upon approval of project(s) by the Director of the Department of Parks and Recreation, the OHMVR Division will prepare and execute project agreements.  The project agreement sets forth the terms and conditions of each project. No project may proceed until a fully executed project is in place.
