LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Applications for grants to maintain off-road vehicle trails and develop new ones are available from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

The DNR awards the grants from a fund paid for by ORV user fees. Public agencies and nonprofit incorporated clubs and organizations can apply.

Eligible projects are those that maintain existing designated state trails, routes and use areas; repair public lands damaged by inappropriate ORV use; and create new trails. Funds also could be used to pay for liability insurance, leases or easements.

Program manager Steve Kubisiak says Michigan has 33 trail sponsors that maintain more than 3,700 miles of designated ORV trails and routes.

Application forms are available at https://www.michigan.gov/dnr-grants .
