Yamaha’s Off-Highway Vehicle Access Initiative program contributed more than $300,000 in the first half of this year to promote safe, responsible riding and open, sustainable riding areas, the manufacturer reported in a press release.

Yamaha’s GRANT (Guaranteeing Responsible Access to our Nation’s Trails) program donated more than $110,000 in cash and equipment to ATV riding clubs, national forests, local land managers, recreational conservancy advocates and other members of the greater off-highway vehicle community in the second quarter of this year.

These GRANTs bring Yamaha’s total contributions for 2009 to $300,000, and the total contributions to date to more than $985,000.

“Yamaha’s commitment to the OHV community, demonstrated by the continued, aggressive GRANT funding and hands-on support, remains strong,” Mike Martinez, Yamaha’s general manager of ATV and side-by-side operations, said in the release. “Yamaha considers it our duty as a leading OHV manufacturer to help support these efforts and ensure that OHV enthusiasts have open access to safe and sustainable riding areas.”
