CA OHV Grant Workshops - Jan. 8-12 - Fiscal Support/Partnership is Force Multiplier

CA OHV Grant Supported Trail Management - Eldorado NF

QWR believes that maybe the single most important factor in modern OHV recreation is the use of diverse partnerships as a synergistic force multiplier when it comes to the management of motorized use on designated roads, trails, and riding areas.

Grant opportunities often act as an important fiscal support mechanism for local and federal agencies that are faced with increased demands for high quality OHV recreation while at the same time dealing with decreasing or stagnant recreation budgets.

A good example of key grant partnerships is the CA OHV Grants Program where it is hosting its annual OHV Grant Workshops next week in Northern and Southern California.

According to the CA OHMVR website, 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 recognized Native American Tribes, and nonprofit entities.
