NCOHV Grants Awarded
The Nevada Four Wheel Drive Association, for the past two years, has been actively involved in the “rebirth” of the Nevada Commission on Off-Highway Vehicles (NCOHV). We are pleased to present to you the following announcement from the NCOHV, which details the successful completion of the 1st grant cycle. There is enough money left undistributed in the grant fund to accommodate a 2nd grant cycle this year.
There were, if I am correct, a total of fourteen grant applications submitted using the grant guidelines. Several grant applications were dismissed out of hand because they clearly did not enhance OHV recreation in Nevada. Other applications were incomplete and the authors were invited to resubmit their grant applications with all of the information required by the grant guideline handbook. Finally, some grants were not approved because the organizations submitting them had asked for major amounts of money in the application, but had no “track record” to show the commission to support such an award. These applicants were advised to come back in the next grant cycle with a smaller project or equipment request and use this to establish this “track record”.
If your organization is recognized by the Nevada Secretary of State (you are not required to be a federal 501 (c) organization) and are interested in pursuing a OHV-related grant, please go to the NCOHV website, www.nvohv.com and download the grant application guide.
