SACRAMENTO, Calif. — The Bureau of Land Management invites the public to comment on proposals it has submitted to the California State Parks, Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division (Division) for the 2021 grant cycle. The proposals will be available for review and comment from March 2 to May 3, 2021.

“Dedicated BLM staff throughout California have developed and submitted roughly 30 proposals covering off-highway vehicle (OHV) rules enforcement, operation and maintenance, restoration work and other activities,” said Jane Arteaga, BLM California’s OHV and Travel Management Lead. “Public input is extremely important and will inform and improve our project proposals so we can better serve our OHV enthusiasts.”

Proposals are funded through the Grants and Cooperative Agreements Program sponsored by the State of California that provides financial assistance to cities, counties, districts, federal and state agencies, educational institutions, federally recognized Tribes and nonprofit entities.

Proposals will be available no later than March 2 and public comments can be submitted directly to the Division between March 2 and May 3, 2021 (late comments are not accepted):
