The Department of Resources and Economic Development (DRED) is proposing to amend its administrative rules pertaining to the Bureau of Trails Grant-In-Aid Program (Res 8400) and the Trail Use Rules (Res 8500). The Bureau’s initial proposals can be accessed from the Division’s Administrative Rules.

The purpose of the Grant-In-Aid Program is to provide assistance to organized, non-profit off highway recreational vehicle (OHRV) clubs and political subdivisions (such as towns and municipalities). The intent of the Grant-In-Aid Program is to encourage development, maintenance, construction, grooming, and safety of OHRV trails in the State of New Hampshire.

Funds for the Grant-In-Aid program are derived from OHRV registration fees and unrefunded gas taxes. These funds are kept in a separate account and cannot be used for any other purpose.
