After staff gather public comment, a preliminary grant application will be submitted to the State's Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division (OHMVR) by Monday March 7th. The application will then be publicly available on OHMVR's website for a second public commenting period between March 8th and May 2nd.  

The Forest Staff must submit a final grant application by Monday June 6th

The Forest has been a recipient of State OHV grants for over 20 years and has received several million dollars to create and maintain staging areas and trails, patrol and enforce regulations, and restore damaged lands.
