Here is update from Ohio contact
During a normal grant cycle approximately $468,000.00 goes towards motorized recreational trails, $624,000.00 goes to diverse trails, and $468,000.00 goes towards non-motorized trails.

We are currently taking motorized applications in a special funding round, which ends on May 31, 2013. We have a total of $412,000.00 in motorized funding that we would like to authorize this year.

So i want more ohio trails since there is nothing around the miami valley area near me. But those seem like ludicrous amounts of money to me. So my question is what is it supposed to be for and what can I do to try to get it to go towards making trails available in mid western ohio. Im even open to just paying me that money to go make some new trails, lol.

But seriously what do you need us to do?

To access the funds a grant application needs to be submitted.

Here is some additional information.

I did talk with Blue Ribbon Coalition. I was given this information Texas Motorized Trails Coalition
used RTP funds to assist with Barnwell Mountain Recreation Area

The state of Ohio contact did forward a completed sample grant application. It is a big document and I am not able to forward from my email. I am not sure how to put it or parts on the forum.

I have sent Northwest Crawlers, Stillwell Stompers, Southington Off Road, Yankee Lake Truck Night an email along with clubs in Cincinnati, EC4WDA. Posted on various forums NEO 4X4.

Any email addresses for th businesses, clubs etc that might be interested would be appreciated.

Timing appears right to get Ohio to recognize four wheel drive use as revenue generator for the state and to create areas for it to happen.

I tried to send you pm but your inbox is full.

Do you belong to a club? Did my last posting answer any of your questions? Will you be at Muddy Buddy event on May 18th? I have posted info on the website and a few others.

I can forward you the grant application. I just need email address. It is a large document and I have not been able to post to most forums.

Yeah sorry just emptied my inbox, you should see my regular emails inbox it in the thousand lol. Its
I dont currently belong to a club just a group of freinds with 4x4s. And MuddyBuddies would most likely be able to do more with it honestly.

So just to clarify is this for use only on public land or also private. Because I know of a few people with a good amount of land that would be willing to develop trails, but I just dont know of any public land that might be open to 4x4 in my area.

If you want to email it go ahead and I'll give it a look see.
