Clovis, CA (March 06, 2017) – The Clovis Independent 4 Wheelers 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 Clovis Independent 4 Wheelers 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.

Each year the State of California makes funding available through the OHV Grants Program. The Grants Program provides financial assistance to eligible agencies and organizations (federal, city, county, nonprofit, etc.) that develop, maintain, operate, expand, support, or contribute to well-managed, high quality, OHV recreation areas, roads, and trails.

Beginning March 7, 2017, the Clovis Independent 4 Wheelers' grant applications will be available for review at: http://olga.ohv.parks.ca.gov/egrams_ohmvr/user/home.aspx. The CI4W’s OHMVR grant applications for Ground Operations grant 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 listed above or mailed to: Clovis Independent 4 Wheelers, PO Box 764, Clovis, CA 93613 or email to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

We are seeking grant funds to complete road and trail maintenance work within the Bald Mountain OHV Trail System to insure that legal OHV trails and forest roads are kept open for public OHV use and to reduce potential adverse conditions.

Maintenance work include: removing road and trail side brush, minor tread maintenance, blocking unauthorized routes to focus OHV use on designated trails, removing downed trees and boulders from roadways and trails, maintaining and installing drainage structures such as culverts, dips, and lead off ditches, armoring stream crossings, placement of rock riprap, repairing and installing road and trail directional signs and route markers, performing road and trail condition surveys, reporting unsafe road and trail conditions or heavy maintenance needs, placement of retaining barriers and support structures for tread repair and stream approaches, and removal of trash and graffiti.

For more information or to provide comments through other means, please contact Mike McGarity, Grant Administrator, PO Box 764, Clovis, CA 93613 or email to: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
