Grants starting at $20,000 to Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, Utah, and Wyoming nonprofit organizations, government agencies, businesses, individuals, tribes, and educational institutions to restore, enhance, and conserve sagebrush habitat. Priority is given to projects that include a focus on restoration and enhancement of mesic wet meadows as well as projects in Idaho and Wyoming that result in a reduction of invasive annual grasses and maintenance/increase of desired perennial plants.
The objectives of the Sagebrush Landscapes Conservation Program are to support several strategic projects that accelerate and implement cross-jurisdictional management collaborations and/or provide transfer of knowledge and implementation of specific priority conservation practices including:
- Mesic area/wet meadow restoration
- Innovative and strategic management of annual invasive grasses in Idaho and Wyoming
Preference will be given to projects that accelerate adoption of the most cost effective and sustainable approaches that exhibit a high likelihood of success.
All proposals must specifically address how projects for which funds are requested will directly and measurably contribute to the accomplishment of program goals. The Sagebrush Landscapes Conservation Program seeks projects in the following program priorities:
1. Mesic Area and Wet Meadow Restoration ($1.705 million available)
2. Management/local eradication of invasive annual grasses (cheatgrass, ventenata, or medusahead) on sagebrush rangelands in Idaho or Wyoming ($645K available)
3. Conduct restoration and survey efforts for endangered Colorado plants, specifically the Colorado Hookless Cactus, DeBeaque Phacelia, and Parachute beardtongue. ($250k available)
