Vermont Aquatic Nuisance Control Grants Program

The Vermont Aquatic Nuisance Control grant-in-aid grants program is now accepting applications for 2017 projects addressing aquatic invasive and nuisance species. The applications are due no later than Wednesday, February 8, 2017.

These grants provide financial assistance to municipalities and agencies of the state for aquatic invasive and nuisance plant and animal management programs – control, spread prevention, and educational projects. Funding for grant-in-aid grants comes from a portion of annual revenues from state motorboat registration fees and often federal funds. For the 2017 program, an estimated $500,000 is available.

The 2017 application and instructions are available on line at:
