Grants to Arizona nonprofit organizations, state and local government agencies, Tribes, and public educational institutions to control and eliminate noxious plants and weeds. Funding is intended to address infestations that threaten woodland, forested, or rangeland areas. The theme for the 2020 grant is riparian areas, or areas that interface between land and a river or stream.

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.

Priority will be given to projects that:

  • Are located within a riparian area along a river or stream.
  • Provide at least 10% matching contribution (from local, state, or federal funds). Projects that provide more than 10% match may receive priority for funding.
  • Compliment and/or have adjacency to past or present invasive plant projects.
  • Demonstrate partnerships in treating and monitoring invasive plants and use an integrated weed management approach. 
  • Are implemented within a priority area as described in DFFM’s 2018 Invasive Plant Treatment Prioritization map (

Projects should involve invasive plant species found on the Arizona Noxious Weed List ( and/or USDA Forest Service: Invasive Plants and Weeds of the National Forests and Grasslands in the Southwestern Region (

Proposals should identify how planning, coordination, mapping/inventory, monitoring, and evaluation will be accomplished for the duration of the project. Components of a project may include planning, prevention, suppression, reseeding, and planting native vegetation and maintenance activities. Grant recipients shall follow state and federal laws to preserve threatened and endangered species when implementing the project.
