Clovis, CA March 06, 2017– The Sierra National Forest is requesting public input for the 2016/2017 State Off-Highway Motor Vehicle (OHV) grant funding application cycle. As part of the grant process, the Sierra National Forest is requesting public input or project ideas for what individuals, and organizations would like to have included in this application cycle. This Public feedback will be considered as development of the preliminary grant application continues and final applications are prepared.

The Forest’s OHMVR grant applications for Ground Operations and Law Enforcement Patrol grants will be available for public review, and input for a comment period of 30 days which will end April 7, 2017.

Written comments can be submitted to the OHMVR Division's Website or mailed to: Sierra National Forest, Attn. Jody Nickerson, 1600 Tollhouse Road, Clovis, CA 93611 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
