Request a Grant Writer

Grants of up to $1,000 to Florida individuals, nonprofit organizations, IHEs, and schools for educational and outreach programs that raise awareness of invasive plants that are not indigenous to the state. Funding is intended to support projects that educate Floridians about the impact that these types of plants have on the local environment and economy.

Award preference will be given to proposals that meet the following criteria:

  • Involve plants listed as Category I species on the FLEPPC 2019 List of Invasive Plant Species, found on www.fleppc.org (projects involving Category II species will also be considered);
  • Include an educational message that will reach a large segment of the community;
  • Heighten community awareness about non-native invasive plant identification, management, prevention, environmental and/or economic impacts;
  • Involve an active component (passive programs such as signs, brochures or websites should be enhanced to promote an event or an action involving the target audience);
  • Include an evaluation process of project success or failure (example: “we will measure success by counting the number of participants,” or “we will describe why our goal was or was not achieved”).
  • Demonstrate matching funds or in-kind contributions;
  • Include partnerships (please specify type and degree of involvement for partner entities);
  • Include a detailed timeline of grant activities;
  • First-time applicants and new/startup projects will be given preference, although repeat applicants and established programs will be considered.
