Stanislaus National Forest Announces Public Comment Period for State OHV Grant


SONORA, Calif., – The Stanislaus National Forest announced that a public comment period will begin March 6 for preliminary 2023 off-highway vehicle grant applications. Interested parties may submit comments from March 7 through May 1.

Those wishing to make comment will need to go to the Online Grant Application (OLGA) Portal:

Once at the OLGA home page, click on the “Public Review Instructions” link which will bring up how to make comments, it’ll show this page >

Forest recreation specialists and OHV managers have completed three draft grants for consideration by the California State Parks Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division.

“These grants are vital for a successful OHV program on the forest,” said Todd Newburger, public service staff officer for the Stanislaus National Forest. “Equally important is input from the OHV community that enjoys off-highway recreation. Their input on the program helps us provide quality recreation.”

 The links and information about how to provide public comments will be published March 7 after the California Parks and Recreation page is active.

The proposals include a forest-wide operations and maintenance project for OHV trails and facilities and a forest-wide law enforcement patrol project.  The OHMVR Division grants are integral to the ongoing success of the forest’s OHV program.
