2022 NOHVCC Annual Conference participants will know that Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative (OAI) served as title sponsor of this year’s Mobile Workshop held outside of Knoxville, TN. Now, your organization has an opportunity to avail itself of grant funding for critical OHV education and projects. OAI operates on a quarterly schedule and is currently accepting applications for its latest round of awards. Submission deadline is December 15, 2022.
From the OAI website:
The Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative is dedicated to those who work and play outdoors including, but not limited to, those who rely on off-highway vehicles (OHVs) to ride, camp, hunt or fish.
Supporting the outdoor enthusiast, the Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative’s mission is to provide practical support for efforts that promote safe, responsible use of OHVs, educate the public on proper recreational land use and wildlife conservation practices, and protect appropriate and sustainable access to public lands.
Each quarter, Yamaha accepts applications from non-profit or tax exempt groups (clubs & associations), public riding areas (local, state and federal), outdoor enthusiast associations and land conservation organizations, and communities with an interest in protecting, improving, expanding and/or maintaining access for safe, responsible and sustainable use by motorized off-road vehicles. Our committee will review each application and award funds to deserving projects.
