The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is now accepting proposals for projects that will help prevent and control invasive species. Through the Michigan Invasive Species Grant Program (MISGP), $3.6 million is expected to be available to applicants in 2018. The program is part of a statewide initiative to prevent and control species that can cause harm to Michigan’s economy, environment, and human health.
- Applicants must be a local/state/federal/tribal unit of government; public university; or 501c(3).
- The project must support the overall goals of the MISGP. Specific priorities and scoring criteria can be found in the handbook.
- Funding requests must range between $25,000–$400,000 per project.
- Applicants must commit to a 10% local match of the total project cost.
There is a live webinar scheduled for Wednesday, May 23 at 10:00AM to explain the 2018 grant process. Registration is required.
