OHV LogoOHMVR Grants: Where does the funding go? -- to counties and agencies

The Off Highway Motor Vehicle Trust Fund was established under the California Vehicle Code 38000, Chappie-Z’berg Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Law of 1971 as a user funded program to provide for motorized recreation opportunities for the State of California.  The legislation established a "trust fund" that is controlled by Public Resources Code 5090 and California Code of Regulations 4970 to issue grants and cooperative agreements to local and federal agencies to provide for and manage motorized recreation opportunities.

The OHMVR Grants are available to partners from Federal, local and non-profit that submit grant applications within one of the four categories: Education and Safety; Law Enforcement, Operation and Maintenance; and Restoration.  

 

Federal grant partners are typically U.S. Forest Service and the Bureau of Land Management. Local partners are county and city governments. The Non-profit partners are other non-government organizations.

The below chart provides for a summation of funding per grant partner category from 1975-2012 by county.  Note: virtually each county in the state has benefitted from the OHMVR Grant funding.
