MORENO VALLEY, Calif. - The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has announced the dates, times and locations of public meetings to provide input in the development of off-highway vehicle (OHV) grant proposals for submission to the California State Parks, Off Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division (OHMVR).  Proposed grant applications are currently being prepared by BLM staff for the 2016/2017 grant cycle.    

The OHMVR Grants and Cooperative Agreements Program supports well-managed off-highway vehicle recreation in California by providing financial assistance to cities, counties, districts, federal agencies (including the BLM), state agencies, educational institutions, federally recognized Native American Tribes and nonprofit entities.  The BLM applies for grants from the California Department of Parks and Recreation OHMVR Division each year to help fund and coordinate its off-highway vehicle (OHV) program. The grants support OHV management activities such as law enforcement, resource protection, planning and monitoring, visitor services, and maintenance on BLM lands throughout the state.
