A two-step application process is required to allow public comment and feedback before final submittal. The preliminary application is due March 2nd. This will open a 30-day public review and comment period and will follow with final applications due on Monday May 4th. The State is using an internet-based “On-Line Grant Application” process as the means to apply for the State funding.
The Amador County Sheriff’s Office grant application is for law enforcement related activities. The preliminary application will be available 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 Sgt. Mark Ham at 209-223-6785.
If awarded, the grant will allow the Amador County Sheriff’s Office to maintain a successful partnership with the United States Forest Service and continue to provide the public with outstanding OHV recreation opportunities.
Current State regulations require annual public participation in this fund allocation process. The agreements support OHV management activities in the national forest, including operations and maintenance, restoration, law enforcement, education and safety.
