    Wow that was fast....It sure seems to me that this grant is driven by location. We had a Vol FD in our County get a Ranger last year, so I just have a feeling the odds of us getting one in the same County is slim....I hope I'm wrong but for marketing purposes they would like to spread them all over the Country...

      Keep us updated

      Has anyone else heard from the Polaris Grant? Keep us updated on this as we wait for other grants to start up.

        Polaris T.R.A.I.L.S. Grant

        Anyone with an ATV track in their district should look into the Polaris T.R.A.I.L.S. Grant. We tried for a Ranger through U.S. Smokeless several times and were denied. We have a track locally that keeps us quite busy throughout the year. I found the trails program and figured "why not." A primary goal was track safety, what better way to improve safety? They give up to $10K for everything from lobbying for OHV parks to safety. We asked for $10K to purchase a Ranger 6x6. We had it within the month. They award every quarter and only just started the program in 06. Another dept. received an award the same time. Check out Polaris' website for more info. I'll have a pic of our pretty new Ranger on mine soon.

          Not much news on the Polaris after the first DJ in this post. Must be slow..or not many announcements of DJs.

                If I remember right, they come through snail mail. Haven't got mine....yet. Hopefully Kurt's wisdom and assistance will prevent such a negative impact on my life this year.

                      Question

                      I wonder how many rounds of DJs they send out. Checked the mail, but nothing so far. Any veterans of this grant know how it works? This is my first time. Thanks

                        They arrive by snail mail and ususally there is only one round. They are quite diligent in most cases about making sure that everyrone gets notified one way or the other.

                          I'm watching the mail diligently and have yet to see anything. Any idea how long the DJ process takes to get them all mailed out? I hate to get my hopes up already.

                            Same

                            Same here. Grant writing is just like sports. I get the same butterflys when it comes to grant time as I did when I played college basketball. Maybe thats what keeps me goin.

                              We have not gotten a DJ yet....When do they start letting agencies know if they are getting a ATV? Is it much latter in the year?
