Appropriately enough for Earth Day. Polaris announced it was donating $80,000 to off-road and all-terrain vehicles (ATV) organizations across the United States as a part of its ongoing T.R.A.I.L.S. Grant Program. A total of nine nonprofit organizations were awarded grants ranging from $6,000 to $10,000 to support the development, improvement and expansion of trails.  The Q1 cash recipients include:

• American Sand Association (Tempe, Arizona)
• Osseo Area Dusty Riders Inc. (Osseo, Wisconsin)
• Heart of Oregon Corps., Inc. (Bend, Oregon)
• Dexter Rail Riders (Dexter, Maine)
• Garland Trail Hawks ATV Club (Garland, Maine)
• Millsfield ATV Club (Berlin, New Hampshire)
• Minnesota Kitty Cat Racers Association (Lindstrom, Minnesota)
• Christ Miami Corp. (Miami, Florida)
• Atlas Foundation (Dearborn Heights, Michigan)

“These organizations and clubs are made up of passionate volunteers and riders who love our sport – they are the heart of the off-roading community with a desire to help create a safe and enjoyable experience for all those looking to get out and ride,” said Steve Menneto, president of Off-Road at Polaris. “Polaris is excited to help support their efforts and show our appreciation for their passion and dedication through the T.R.A.I.L.S. Grant Program.”

“We're thrilled beyond words at the amazing generosity of Polaris, adds Joe Valentim, President, Garland Trail Hawks ATV Club. "The funding that we have received has helped put Garland Trail Hawks on ATV riders' radar for a Central Maine riding destination. Now that spring is here, everyone is getting very excited to get out there. With this infusion of funding, we're excited to start work on this year's improvements.”

Since its inception in 2006, Polaris’ T.R.A.I.L.S. Grant Program has provided funding to national, state and local organizations to help support the future of ATV, snowmobiling and off-road riding. The T.R.A.I.L.S. Grant Program focuses on two main objectives: promoting safe and responsible riding and supporting environmental preservations and trail access. Organizations may use funds from the grant to increase and maintain land access through trail development, maintenance projects, safety and education initiatives and other projects. Apply here:
