Yamaha Motor Corp., USA, has announced that the Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative has awarded more than $100,000 in funds and equipment to nine grant applicants in the third quarter of 2016. The Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative supports off-highway (OHV) riders, as well as those who rely on access to land for camping, hunting, fishing and more.

“This marks the seventh year of Yamaha’s support of the National FFA Convention where we work to further the message of responsible outdoor and motorized recreation among the future leadership of U.S. agriculture,” said Steve Nessl, Yamaha’s ATV and SxS group marketing manager. “With a record-breaking 650,000 students participating in FFA programs across the country, these impressive young individuals have a diverse and intimate understanding of the value of land, and will have a significant impact on access issues in the years to come.”

Funding for projects is available, and the Yamaha Outdoor Access Initiative encourages application submissions from nonprofit or tax exempt organizations. The following organizations have recently received grants.

• Mille Lacs Drift Skippers Snowmobile & ATV Club, Minnesota
• Cullman County Commission, Alabama
• Itasca County Land Department, Minnesota
• Mt. Baber ATV Club, Oregon
• Northern Traxx ATV Club, Minnesota
• Wagon Wheel OHV Club, Colorado
