Southern California Mountains Foundation Seeks Public input on
OHV State Grants
SAN BERNARDINO, Calif., March 7, 2017 –The Southern California Mountains Foundation will be seeking public comments regarding their upcoming State of California Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division (OHMVRD) 2016/2017 grant proposals that were preliminarily submitted on March 6, 2017. This opens the second public review and comment period. Comments can be submitted from Tuesday, March 7th through Monday, April 3, 2017 by 5pm.
The Foundation will review and consider all public comments and submit the final application to the State on May 1, 2017. Initial public comments were solicited and received by the Foundation in February. We are submitting two proposals that will support Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) education programs and restoration activities on the San Bernardino National Forest.
The Foundation is soliciting public input specific to our 2016-2017 grant application proposals for Cooperative Agreements with the Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division (OHMVRD). We are encouraging constructive comments/suggestions that will enable us to improve our programs.
The State of California Department of Parks and Recreation, the San Bernardino National Forest, and the Southern California Mountains Foundation have maintained a successful partnership for more than 12 years and have previously granted the Foundation funding to produce quality safety and education programs and to complete several large-scale forest restoration projects.
Our preliminary applications will be available online by visiting the California State OHV Grants and Cooperative Agreements program at www.ohv.parks.ca.gov.

Comments to the Southern California Mountains Foundation should be submitted to Linda Stamer at email@example.com and to California State Parks by using the "Grants" tab on their website at www.ohv.parks.ca.gov.
