The ATVBC Trail Development and Maintenance Grant program was created to help assist clubs and their hardworking volunteers on the important work they do around the province to create and maintain mixed use trails for the public.
Dedicated volunteers have created and maintain a BC wide network of trails, providing safe, environmentally sustainable experiences for motorized and non-motorized recreationalists.
Each year, ATVBC receives applications from ATVBC member clubs around the province outlining their various projects and asking for assistance. Our grant committee works diligently to review each application and find ways to provide support to each qualified submission.
In order to fund this important grant program, ATVBC hosts an annual raffle. Net raffle proceeds fund the ATVBC grant program and other important initiatives. The success of the raffle is so important to the clubs as the more we are able to raise, the more we are able to distribute to the clubs for further trail and maintenance work.
The ATVBC Trail Maintenance and Development Grant program has been structured to align with the intake schedule of the Provincial ORV Trail Fund to allow clubs to leverage ATVBC funding towards matching funds for ORV Trail Fund applications on larger trail projects, therefore first round applications are accepted until Feb 15* each year, to allow for award decisions in time to apply for ORV Trail Funding.
Applications received after February 15th* will, for the balance of the calendar year, be dealt with on an ad hoc basis subject to the discretion of the Board of Directors and availability of funds.
