We are now accepting applications for the 2018 Invasive Plant Grant Program!
How to Apply
The Department of Forestry and Fire Management's Invasive Plant Grant Program is now accepting applications - through November 30, 2018. DFFM, with funding provided by the USFS, is soliciting proposals from $10,000-$20,000 to treat invasive and noxious plant invasions that threaten forested, woodland, or rangeland areas.
Invasive and noxious plants are a major threat across the state of Arizona. They recognize no borders and occur across all land ownerships. Invasive and noxious plants change the natural fire regime, alter watersheds, out-compete native vegetation and crops, and destroy the natural beauty of the Arizona landscape.
