Aquatic Invasive Species Grants
The Initiative Foundation announces an open process (no deadlines) to apply for funds for projects that implement or expand innovative and comprehensive pilot projects to prevent the introduction or spread of aquatic invasive species (AIS) into the surface waters of Minnesota. A total of $3.6 million will be awarded for pilot projects and an assessment of their effectiveness. The grant program was approved by the Minnesota Legislature from the Outdoor Heritage Fund, one of four funds of the Clean Water, Land, and Legacy Amendment passed in 2008. It is intended to fund pilot projects anywhere in Minnesota that are legal, effective, and financially sustainable methods of preventing the spread of AIS through a range of communication, education, and outreach efforts; inspection and decontamination; enforcement; containment; and/or other methods than can be administered locally.
