Southern California Mountains Foundation Seeks Public Input for State OHMVR Grants

The Southern California Mountains Foundation (SCMF) will be seeking public input for their upcoming State of California Off-Highway Motor Vehicle Recreation Division (OHMVR) preliminary grants that will be submitted on March 4, 2024 with the final grant applications due June 3, 2024.

California grant regulations require public input prior to the preliminary application deadline for this fund allocation process. These grants will support restoration activities (such as fencing, planting and seeding) on Off-Highway Vehicle (OHV) damaged lands managed by the San Bernardino National Forest and Army Corps of Engineers.

The State of California Department of Parks and Recreation and the Southern California Mountains Foundation have maintained a successful partnership for more than 20 years and have granted the Foundation funding to produce quality OHV safety and education programs and multiple successful restoration projects on public lands. SCMF has been a longtime partner of the San Bernardino National Forest and more recently a partner to the Bureau of Land Management and the Army Corps of Engineers.

We are encouraging the public to provide suggestions for our grants that will improve our Restoration Program. Public meetings will be held virtually on the following date:

February 13, 2023 5:00 to 6:00pm (SCMF Grants Public Meeting)
