Noxious Weed Trust Fund County/Reservation Program Enhancement Grant Applications - Due by January 6, 2023
The special county/reservation noxious weed grants program is designed to help counties and reservations accomplish unique or specific weed control activities and/or capital improvement projects for their weed programs beyond the scope of the normal county or reservation budgets. The intent of these special grants is not to replace existing local noxious weed funding, but to supplement the county or reservation funding to improve weed management. Funding for the County/Reservation Program Enhancement grants is set at $7,500 per county or reservation.

To be eligible for these grants, counties must meet the 1.6 mills or equivalent financial requirements as set forth in 80-7-814, MCA and have a current noxious weed management plan on file with the Montana Department of Agriculture. Reservations should submit their weed management plan or indicate if they follow the county weed management plan.
Receipt of these specific grants does not limit the county or reservation from making application for additional cooperative, educational, or research grants through the Montana Noxious Weed Trust Fund grants program.
Additional information can be found in the Noxious Weed Trust Fund Grant Guidelines and on the Montana Department of Agriculture website.
