Applications for the Noxious Weed Trust Fund Education funding opportunity are due by January 6, 2024.
The Department of Agriculture is accepting grant applications for noxious weed education proposals. Education projects should focus on expanding awareness and pubic knowledge of noxious weeds in Montana.
Applicants must contact and work with an organization, such as a weed district, conservation district, extension office, or tribe to be the funding recipient for grant dollars. Noxious Weed Trust Fund grants are a reimbursement type of grant. The grant amount is limited to a maximum of $75,000/application and the application deadline is midnight on January 6, 2024. Projects are not required to have a 50:50 match on the budget form, but some match is suggested. All proposed projects should complement and enhance the Montana Weed Management Plan.
Additional information can be found in the Noxious Weed Trust Fund Grant Guidelines and on the Montana Department of Agriculture website.
