The first of its kind in the off-road industry, the T.R.A.I.L.S. grant program was launched in January 2006 for off-road clubs, associations and grassroots groups. 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 organizations in the United States to ensure the future of riding and getting outdoors.
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.
