Legislative and regulatory issues impacting OHV recreation are only one piece of the puzzle.  Building and maintaining OHV trails takes funding as do safety programs and other efforts.  Below is a quick overview provided by Yamaha of its Outdoor Access Initiative.  If you or your club needs grants “to advance the causes of land stewardship and access to public land” please visit www.YamahaOAI.com to apply or to learn more.

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, fish or farm.

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 agricultural 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.

More information from Yamaha:

Yamaha is a dedicated advocate for access.  For more than 8 years, Yamaha – through its Outdoor Access Initiative – has provided direct support to groups and individuals best positioned to advance the causes of land stewardship and access to public land across the nation.  The Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative works constantly to identify quality projects to fund and support.  Here is a brief snapshot of the work it has done to date, the communities served and the projects that are prioritized for funding:
