Financial Resources for the Control of Invasive Species
A list of financial resources for controlling invasive species of all kinds has been posted on the Governer’s Wisconsin Invasive Species Council website under the “Resources” tab. The list, prepared by the Department of Natural Resource’s Invasive Species Team, provides links or other contact information to funding sources provided by federal and state agencies along with private foundations.
The list can be searched by grantee and taxa eligibility. Eligible grantees range from government agencies, tribal and local governments, businesses, non-profit organizations to private individuals. Eligible taxa include plant pests and diseases, invasive plants, aquatic invasive species and invasive animals, both invertebrate and vertebrate. Eligibility categories can be selected using one or both of the drop-down menus.
Some grants are solely for invasive species work. Others include work on invasive species as part of a larger goal. For example, DNR wildlife stamp grants can support invasive species control as part improving the habitat of game birds and waterfowl. The webpage has an email link by which you can alert them to out-of-date information and broken links. Please use them if you encounter these problems and, especially, to inform us of funding opportunities not included in the list.
Be sure to check these out, there may be funding available for your invasive species control needs.
