The purpose of the Grant-In-Aid (GIA) Program is to provide assistance to organized, non-profit off highway recreational vehicle (OHRV) and snowmobile (SMC) clubs for projects that will benefit the ridership of OHRVs and snowmobiles.

The intent of the Program is to enhance the development, maintenance, construction, grooming, grading, and safety of public use OHRV and SMC trails in New Hampshire.

The Program is governed by Administrative Rules, Bureau of Trails Grant-In-Aid Program (Res 8400) and Trail Use Rules (Res 8500)
Funding for the Program is derived from OHRV and SMC registration fees and un-refunded gas taxes.  These funds are dedicated to the GIA Program through RSA, kept in a separate account, and cannot be utilized for any other purpose. 

OHRV clubs apply for grants yearly through the Program.  Snowmobile clubs apply for grants twice a year; summer grants for trail work/equipment and winter grants for grooming assistance. 

See more information about the Bureau of Trails.

Please note: Summer Grant-in-Aid applications closed. Winter snowmobile applications will be posted to this site in Fall 2023.
