Utility Terrain Vehicle (UTV) Trail Aids

Counties, towns, cities, villages and tribes can apply for funds to maintenance of trails, minor development, gates, and signing. This is a companion program to the ATV Trail Aids Program.


Counties, towns, cities, villages and tribes can apply for UTV Trail Aids.

Eligibility, Funding & Distributing

  • A project to improve or maintain all-terrain vehicle trails for use by utility terrain vehicles is eligible.
  • The maximum amount allowed for aid is $100 per mile for all-terrain vehicle trails that also allow UTVs and are maintained not less than 3 months per year including the months of June, July, and August.

Any costs incurred PRIOR to receipt of a grant are not reimbursable and MAY jeopardize your entire grant.
