CARSON CITY–A new round of grant funding–$1.5 million in all—is available for Off-Highway Vehicle projects throughout Nevada. The application period for the grants is open through Nov. 19, and grants will be awarded in December of this year.

Any Nevada resident, community group or organization interested in supporting an OHV project in the state is eligible to apply. Projects completed by past grant awards include the Logandale Trails restroom facilities, Nevada Outdoor School OHV education, trail maintenance by the Reno Area Dirt Riders and the Nevada Trail Maps collaborative.

Eligible projects include trail planning, maintenance, land acquisitions, mapping, signage, law enforcement, education, safety training and natural or cultural resource conservation.

The grants are offered through the Nevada Commission on Off-Highway Vehicles and funded by the state’s OHV registration fees.

The application and instructions are available online at ohv.nv.gov/grant-program.
