Grants of up to $1,000 to South Carolina nonprofit organizations, individuals, and academic institutions for projects that control or increase awareness of invasive plant species. The intent of this program is to support individuals and organizations working to restore sites impacted by non-native invasive plants.
The mission of the South Carolina Exotic Pest Plant Council is to support the management of invasive exotic plants in South Carolina's natural areas by providing a forum for the exchange of scientific, educational and technical information.
The Community Grant Program (CGP) is intended to provide organizations with funds to complete restoration projects on sites impacted by non-native invasive species. This includes funding for the purchase of equipment, supplies, and herbicides.
Recipient(s) of the CGP are required to present a summary of the restoration activities at the annual SC-EPPC conference (held every September) during the year the grant is awarded. The recipients are also encouraged to write a brief summary article for either Wildland Weeds or the South Carolina Landscape and Nurseryman Association Magazine. The intention of this requirement is to increase public awareness of non-native invasive plant threats and the restoration activities to mitigate them in the state of South Carolina.
