CALIFORNIA - Open House for 2016 Off-Highway Vehicle Grants Scheduled for Feb. 11

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The Inyo National Forest and the Bishop Field Office of the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) will hold an open house February 11, 2016, to gather ideas from the public for requesting off-highway vehicle grant funds.

The informal open house will run from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. at the Forest Service/BLM office, 351 Pacu Lane, Bishop.

Interested citizens are invited to drop in at any time during the open house. Representatives from the two agencies will be available to answer questions about potential grants and to receive ideas about the types of projects and other opportunities to be funded through the grants.

The agencies plan to request grant funds from the State of California Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division (OHMVR) to enhance and manage motorized recreation in the area. Other non-profit organizations that partner with Forest Service and BLM may have their representatives present to discuss their proposals for future grants.

Preliminary grant applications will be submitted to the OHMVR Division by March 7, 2016. The public will be able to comment on the preliminary applications from March 8, to April 4, 2016. Final applications must be submitted by May 2, 2016.

For more information, to submit your ideas through other means, or if you have special needs for accommodation to participate in this open house, please contact Marty Hornick with the Forest Service at (760) 873-2461 or Jeff Starosta with the BLM at (760) 872-5046.
