Grants to Colorado nonprofit organizations, agencies, districts, and private entities for the management of invasive vegetation species and populations. The funding source prefers that projects have an educational or outreach component. Funding is intended to support noxious weed management.

The primary objectives of the Colorado Department of Agriculture (CDA) Noxious Weed Management Fund (WMF) grant program, in compliance with the Colorado Noxious Weed Act Title 35. Agriculture 55 § 35-5.5-116, are to:

  1. Provide additional financial resources to entities that are engaged in cooperative efforts to eradicate and/or contain state-listed noxious weeds;
  2. Produce measureable outcomes across Colorado for noxious weed management; and
  3. Assist new or recently established weed management programs, especially in regions where additional resources are needed.

The primary objectives of the Colorado Department of Agriculture (CDA) and United States Forest Service (USFS) collaborative State and Private Forestry (SPF) grant program are to:

  1. Provide additional financial resources to local communities engaged in cooperative efforts to eradicate and/or contain state, regionally, or locally rare noxious weed species/populations;
  2. To prevent high-priority weed populations from advancing onto USFS property; and
  3. To facilitate participation between local weed managers and National Forest land managers in a cooperative and coordinated approach to managing these high-priority weed problems.

For reimbursable grant expenses, see pp. 6-8 of the RFA in Supporting Documents below.
