The Montana Department of Agriculture is accepting applications for grant funding from the Noxious Weed Trust Fund (NWTF). Grant applications are due by December 1, 2014. The Trust Fund, established in 1985 by the Montana Legislature, can provide grant awards up to $75,000 for eligible noxious weed research projects, state and community education or development projects, and local cooperative landowner cost share grants. Over $1 million dollars from the NWTF program will be available for the development and implementation of noxious weed management programs. “The department and organizations such as county and tribal weed districts, extension offices, and conservation districts are available to assist with the completion of a grant application. We are here to help,” explained Program Manager Dave Burch. For more information, see their website.
