Grants to Maine law enforcement agencies for activities to promote the safe use of off-road recreational vehicles. The purpose of the grant program is to improve policies, purchase equipment, and provide instructional programs for officers throughout the state.

This program supports the maintenance, improvement, and expansion of ATV law enforcement and training for municipal, county, and state enforcement officers. Funding is available for general law enforcement, training and equipment, and multi-jurisdictional law enforcement.

Criteria to be met:
1. Model policy. (A copy of the policy must accompany the application.)
2. Helmets (must be worn during enforcement).
3. Safety Requirements (must be met during enforcement).
4. Training at the Maine Criminal Justice Academy. (Officers that participate in grant-funded enforcement will need to be trained.)
5. Agency's ability to demonstrate past involvement with ATV enforcement and complaint response.

There are three (3) different types of grants:
- General ATV Enforcement: Level 1 Enforcement: Handling ATV complaints from Landowners or other persons about the operation of ATVs, responding to ATV accidents and enforcing ATV laws during the normal course of patrol duties. Or Level 2 Enforcement: ATV enforcement that is focused on recognized ATV problems in a localized area, but not a multijurisdictional high problem area.
- Multi-Jurisdictional Enforcement: Area of extensive use by ATV operators, including, but not limited to, unauthorized trails of damaged agricultural lands, wetlands or other environmentally sensitive areas. A multi-jurisdictional high-problem area is an area where there are documented complaints from landowners or others about the operation of ATV’s.
- Training and Equipment: For training agency to operate ATVs and enforce ATV laws.
