Grant Description
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.


Recipient

Eligibility
  • City or township governments
  • County governments
  • Local Governments
  • Others (see text field entitled "Additional Eligibility Criteria" for clarification)

Additional Eligibility Criteria
The applicant must be a municipality. If the water body where the project takes place is in more than one municipality, the municipalities may file a joint application. However, a joint application is not required. Any and all funds will be granted directly to the Applicant. Local interest groups such as lake associations must apply through the municipality in which the water body is located.

Pre-Application Information
Grant recipients must contribute at least 25% of the final eligible project cost through in-kind labor (unpaid personnel), in-kind services and/or actual cash expenditures (all from non-state sources). If federal funds are awarded, the match requirement may be greater than 25%. Only in-kind match accrued in the grant project year is eligible.

If a grant is awarded, up to 90 days of pre-award costs are allowable.

An “aquatic nuisance” is an undesirable or excessive substance or population that interferes with the recreational potential or aquatic habitat of a water body, and includes plants, animals and algal populations. Applications are reviewed to determine whether the proposed project is suitable to control or to minimize the effect an aquatic nuisance has on water quality and water use.

Estimated Size of Grant
75% or less of the total estimated project cost.

Term of Contract
