Yamaha’s Outdoor Access Initiative doled out $116,000 in grant money to seven organizations either doing trail work or advocating to keep OHV trails open. Two of the organizations that received funds, Tread Lightly! and the Wenatchee Valley TREAD chapter, are using funds to repair OHV areas that were damaged and closed by wildfires.

Other organizations that received funds are the BlueRibbon Coalition of Utah for the Gemini Bridges/Labyrinth Rims trails; Grand Lake Trail Grooming Inc. of Grand Lake, Colorado; The Great Outdoors Fund for work at the Beasley Knob OHV Area in Georgia; LANDS Foundation for work at Imperial Sand Dunes in California; and Range Riders ATV Club of Itasca County, Minnesota.

The Yamaha OAI is currently accepting applications for Q4 grants. The deadline to apply is December 15, so if your organization is hoping to snag some funds, now is the time.
