Many OHV clubs and associations are 501 (C) (3) not-for-profit organizations as recognized by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).  This designation comes with all sorts of advantages including eligibility for many grant programs, but these advantages come with some limitations particularly when it comes to lobbying.  Lobbying is an important component to effective advocacy in support of creating a positive future for OHV recreation, so it is important to know

OHV maintenance, trail layout and design, trailhead development and any number of other projects require funding. If you have a project to complete, but are not sure where to get the funds, NOHVCC wants to help you get started. Many “old hands” in the OHV community are well-aware of the grant opportunities that are available, but others may not know where to begin. The following grant programs are a great

NOHVCC staff recently delivered a Great Trails Workshop in Colorado that featured a visit to the Hartman Rocks Recreation Area managed by the Bureau of Land Management.  Hartman Rocks is a multiple-use area that provides opportunities for dirt bikes, mountain bikes, equestrian users, hikers, rock crawlers, trials bikes, rock climbers as well as ATVs and ROVs.  The area also has plenty of campsites that include fire rings and picnic tables

An unavoidable truth is that sometimes trails need to be closed.  While everyone in the OHV community strives for more and better access for motorized recreation, some trails simply are not sustainable, were originally located incorrectly, or simply do not meet the needs of the trail system.  This article is about those trails. “You can’t close a trail in the desert.”  This is something that NOHVCC staff hears quite often. 

NOHVCC will award scholarships for a limited number of qualified individuals to attend the NOHVCC Annual Conference in Reno, Nevada October 17-19.  We recognize that attending the Conference is an expensive proposition, so we want to make sure we have the best and brightest from the OHV community participate.  These scholarships will cover the cost of travel, lodging, registration and most meals of awardees.   Invited to apply are active State

NOHVCC staff traveled to Gunnison, CO last month to host its most recent Great Trails Workshop.  The workshop series focuses on the design, layout, construction, maintenance and management of sustainable OHV trails and emphasizes hands-on field training.  Typically, participants include trail managers; trail construction and maintenance supervisors and crews; engineering staff involved in trail planning, design, maintenance and construction; trail contractors; OHV club trail volunteers; and other interested stakeholders.
