Grants to Arizona nonprofit organizations, government agencies, tribes, and educational institutions to control and eliminate noxious plants and weeds. The purpose of this program is to address infestations that threaten woodland, forested, or rangeland areas. The theme for the 2021 grant is emerging threats, or invasive plants that are Class A or Class B state-listed noxious weeds that are high priority for control.

DFFM’s Invasive Plant Grant Program focuses on prevention, control, and eradication of invasive plants and aims to achieve the following objectives:

  • Target and treat invasive plants that are capable of transforming native plant communities in forests, woodlands, or rangeland.
  • Assist in preventing fire and flooding, conserving water, and restoring habitat to wildlife.
  • Increase local capacity to manage and prevent encroachment of invasive plants.
  • Use an integrated weed management approach when treating areas infested with invasive plants through the utilization of available tools including manual, cultural, mechanical, chemical, and biological control methods.

Examples of projects that qualify (not all inclusive):

  • Control or eradication of invasive plants
  • Replacement of invasive plants with native plants through reseeding and planting
  • Removal of woody invasive plant slash by mulching, grinding, etc.

Projects may occur on state, federal, tribal and private lands in Arizona.
