Deadline: grants to combat invasive species

November 1 @ 3:00 pm

Grants to combat invasive species; deadline is Nov. 1

New York State’s Invasive Species Grant Program (ISGP) is accepting applications for grants to combat invasive species; $3 million is available.

Applications are due by 3 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 1.

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) recommends that applicants start the process in advance of the grant application due date; all grant applicants must register in the NYS Grants Gateway System before applying and not-for-profit applicants are required to prequalify in the Grants Gateway system.

Grant awards range from a minimum of $11,000 to a maximum of $200,000, with a required 25 percent match. Project locations must be located wholly within New York State and priority will be given to projects that include opportunities for public participation, are on or close to public lands or waterbodies, and emphasize long-term success.

These grants are part of New York State’s significant investment to combat invasive species through control, removal, research, and prevention.

Municipalities, academic institutions, and not-for-profits may submit applications for funding for eligible projects in up to two of the following categories:

  • Aquatic Invasive Species Watercraft Spread Prevention, Boat Steward Education and Outreach/Voluntary Inspection
  • Aquatic Invasive Species Watercraft Spread Prevention – Stewards – Boat Decontamination Programs
  • Invasive Species Early Detection/Rapid Response and Control
  • Lake Management Planning and Implementation
  • Invasive Species Research
  • Invasive Species Education and Outreach
