Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Eligible Organizations: Universities; Cooperative Weed Management Areas (CWMA’s); County Weed Boards; Federal or State Agencies; Federal, State, Tribal or Private Landowners; Conservation Districts, nonprofits, and/or other Political Subdivisions.

Prohibited Activities:
The Noxious Weed Grants are intended to control or manage noxious weeds with “on-the-ground work.” Invasive Species Mitigation (ISM) Grants will not be awarded for mapping without active on-the-ground treatment. A minimal amount of Noxious Weed Grant funding (less than $5,000) can be used for the purchase of incidental equipment needed to complete a project. The purchase of large pieces of equipment, such as four-wheelers and large spray tanks is not allowed unless prior permission has been given. Funds listed in the (Other) category within the budget and scope of work will require an attached budget sheet defining how funds will be allocated.
