T.R.A.I.L.S.

The first of its kind in the ATV industry, the T.R.A.I.L.S. grant program was launched in January 2006 for ATV clubs, associations and grassroots groups. ATV riders and the trails they use are the lifeblood of the sport and Polaris Industries Inc. aimed to create a program to help.

The T.R.A.I.L.S. program makes funds available to national, state and local organizations in the United States to ensure the future of ATV riding.

The grant program encompasses two main objectives - promoting safe and responsible riding and preserving access. Funds can be used by organizations for trail development and maintenance projects, safety and education initiatives, lobbying and other projects to increase and maintain land access.

Eligibility

Eligible organizations must be 501(c)(3), 501(c)(7) government or non-profit organizations. The T.R.A.I.L.S. Grant Program does not apply to Fire, Rescue or Law Enforcement Organizations.
