Southern California Mountains Foundation Seeks Public input on
OHV State Grant
SAN BERNARDINO, Calif., March 5, 2018 –The Southern California Mountains Foundation is seeking public comments regarding their upcoming State of California Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division (OHMVRD) 2017/2018 grant proposals that were preliminarily submitted on March 5, 2018. This opens the second public review and comment period. Comments can be submitted from Tuesday, March 6th through Monday, April 2, 2018 by 5pm.
The Foundation will review and consider all public comments and submit the final application to the State on May 7, 2018. Initial public comments were solicited and received by the Foundation in January and February of this year. We are submitting one proposal that will support Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) education programs on the San Bernardino National Forest.
The Foundation is soliciting public input specific to our 2017-2018 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 program.
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 13 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 for review online by visiting the California State OHV Grants and Cooperative Agreements program at www.ohv.parks.ca.gov. Hard copies may be requested by contacting Linda Stamer at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Division’s website will provide detailed instructions for accessing the preliminary application and submitting comments. Comments must be submitted via email to both the OHMVR Division and the Southern California Mountains Foundation by April 2, 2018 at 5pm. 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. The preference for receiving comments is by email but can also be sent directly to the State of California by mail by April 2, 2018 at:
