Hello from the Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation (OHMVR) Division!
It is time to prepare for the 2018/2019 Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Grants and Cooperative Agreements Program (Grants Program) grant cycle. The workshops, with a fresh and new look, are scheduled the week of January 7, 2019. They are designed to get you ready, prepared, and informed for the upcoming OHV grants cycle.
The two-day workshop, one held in Southern California (Pomona) and one held in Northern California (Redding), will be two full-day sessions. Please see the attached agenda for the information on the workshops. Regulation updates will be covered on Day 1 and are a very important portion of the workshop for all attendees.
