CARSON CITY – Nevada’s annual grant program for off-highway vehicle projects has opened with $1 million in funding available. Applications are due by Nov. 16 and grants will be awarded by the Nevada Commission on Off-Highway Vehicles on Dec. 8 during a public meeting.
Funding can be used for trail planning, maintenance, land acquisitions, mapping, signage, law enforcement, education, safety training, and resource conservation. Previously funded OHV-related initiatives have promoted OHV activities and safety programs in the state, including the Mesquite to Caliente Route Signing, Lincoln County Recreation Kiosks, Ride Safe Humboldt County and The Nevada Mapping Collaborative.
The grants are funded through registration fees collected for off-highway vehicles. The application and instructions are available online at https://ohv.nv.gov/grant-program.
