Various Wrangler and 4x4 groups and organizations as well as publicly and privately owned off-road trails are all invited to apply for the grant. Starting in 2018, we will also provide grants to groups or organizations that manage projects to clean up and maintain nature preserves, walking/hiking trails and public parks as a match to the off-road clubs.
