Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) Grant Applications:
The OHV grant process has not been delayed during the Covid-19 pandemic as the deadline for grant application submittal approaches. Federal, state and local government agencies as well as not-for profit organizations can apply for OHV grants to enhance recreational use of ATVs, motorcycles, snowmobiles and side-by-sides on public lands in New Mexico. Law Enforcement agencies can apply for grants to conduct OHV patrols and enforce the provisions of the OHV Act 966-3-1001 NMSA). Projects promoting OHV safety or mitigating impacts from OHV use may qualify for grants. Funds from these grants are user-generated revenues from OHV registrations, collected in the state’s Trail safety Fund and administered by the New Mexico Department of Game and Fish.
