Grants to Vermont municipalities for programs that mitigate invasive plants, animals, and algae in local water bodies. Awards will be granted based on the following order of priorities: first priority to projects designed to mitigate new infestations; second priority to projects preventing or controlling the spread of aquatic nuisance species; and third priority to maintenance projects.
In establishing priorities for individual projects, the following criteria are considered: public accessibility and recreational uses; importance to commercial, agricultural or other interests; the degree of local interest; local efforts to control aquatic nuisances; other considerations affecting feasibility, probability of achieving long-term control, and necessity or advantage of the proposed work; and the extent to which the control project is a developmental rather than a maintenance program.
Estimated Size of Grant:
