The new Summer Motorized Trail Pass Grant Program (SMTP) provides project funding with the goal of enhancing and maintaining OHV recreational opportunities for the benefit of OHV enthusiasts in Montana.
The new SMTP Program provides grant funding to OHV Clubs and Organizations for resource maintenance, protection, signage, and the improvement of federally designated motorized trails and riding areas in Montana. Funding for the grant program comes from revenues from the sale of the OHV Resident Trail Pass.
Montana State Parks administers the SMTP grant program with funds appropriated by the State Legislature, and is assisted in grant allocation by the State Trails Advisory Committee (STAC). The STAC is comprised of citizens throughout Montana who have a vested interest in managing recreation opportunities as a valuable resource. Both user groups and land management agencies are represented on the STAC. This diverse group influences the equitable distribution of grant funding to valuable projects throughout the state.
