All awarded funds are reimbursable and can provide wages, supplies, contract work, and 50:50 cost-share for herbicides, commercial applicators, and re-seeding mixtures. Purchasing chemicals through the state bid is highly recommended. All programs should complement and enhance the Montana Weed Management Plan. Applications are due no later than 11:59 PM on January 6, 2023.

The Noxious Weed Trust Fund cannot be used for:
