Yamaha Motor Corp., USA has announced the first quarter 2015 GRANT (Guaranteeing Responsible Access to our Nation’s Trails) recipients from the Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative. This quarter, more than $95,000 was contributed to eight projects supporting the program’s industry-leading dedication to safe, responsible riding and open sustainable access to land, trails and riding areas for OHV users.

“Recognizing OHV riders are also hunters, fishermen, campers, farmers and outdoor enthusiasts, Yamaha’s Outdoor Access Initiative has spent the past year investing in projects that directly benefit the public’s ability to access land for work and play,” said Mike Martinez, Yamaha’s ATV/SxS group Vice President.  “The outdoor recreation community has responded well to the expanded platform of the GRANT program, submitting more thoughtful and well-designed projects that embrace and protect the diverse uses of public land; something we hope to see more of in the coming funding cycles.”

Funding was awarded by the Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative to the following organizations:

  • Androscoggin ATV Club, New Hampshire
  • Beverhead-Deerlodge N.F – Butte Ranger District- Whitetail, Montana
  • Keep Truckee Meadows Beautiful, Nevada
  • National FFA
  • Wonders of Wildlife
  • North County ATV, New Hampshire
  • Tread Lightly!
  • Washington County Board of Supervisors, Mississippi

Riding clubs, outdoor enthusiast associations, land managers and conservationists can find information about the Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative at www.yamahaoutdooraccess.com. In addition to downloading and reviewing the GRANT guidelines for submission, visitors can submit an application with the required attachments directly to the online platform. Yamaha continues to seek qualified projects and applications at local, state and federal levels. The next deadline to submit a GRANT application is Tuesday, June 30, 2015.
