The Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy’s Water Resources Division announced a new grant program to aid in the control or eradication of aquatic invasive plants in Michigan’s inland lakes.
Approximately $100,000 will be available through the Aquatic Invasive Plant (AIP) Control Grant to reimburse permit fees required for projects to control or eradicate inland lake aquatic invasive plant species using physical, biological or chemical control activities (for projects that occur in 2019).
We’re providing this post for planning purposes, a grant handbook will be available June. 1. The handbook will contain detailed information on eligibility, instructions for applying for the grant, and items to be included with the grant application. Grant applications will be accepted from June 1 through July 1. Michigan’s Invasive Species Program is cooperatively implemented by the Michigan departments of Agriculture & Rural Development; Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy; and Natural Resources.
