Trail maintenance, trail signage, weed control — these are among the projects proposed for the 2024 Off-Highway Vehicle grant program. Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is seeking public comment. Comments will be accepted until Friday, May 24, at 5 p.m.

The OHV program received 12 grant requests and proposes to award $500,000. The program receives funding through OHV/motorbike registrations, gas tax and the Summer Motorized Trail Pass revenues. Montana’s Off-Highway Vehicle Program supports projects such as trail maintenance, signs, trail stewards, ethics education, noxious weed control, safety and mapping efforts. Grant awards are distributed by FWP with recommendations from the citizen-based Off-Highway Vehicle Advisory Committee.
