Applications for the 2019 Noxious Weed Trust Fund Local Cooperative funding opportunity are due by January 6, 2019.

The 2018 Continuing - Local Cooperative funding opportunity is for Local Cooperative projects that have previously been funded by the Noxious Weed Trust Fund and have a minimum of three cooperating, adjacent landowners. 

Applicants must contact and work with an organization, such as a weed district, conservation district, extension office, or tribe to be the funding recipient for grant dollars.  Noxious Weed Trust Fund grants are a reimbursement type of grant. 

All grant applications should complement and enhance the Montana Weed Management Plan.  Additional information can be found in the Noxious Weed Trust Fund Grant Guidelines and on the Montana Department of Agriculture website.

The Noxious Weed Trust Fund grant program provides 50:50 cost-share for herbicides, commercial applicators, and re-seeding mixtures.  Projects will be funded only if matching funds are available from the participating cooperators.  The maximum grant dollar request is $75,000 per application.  Administrative costs up to 3% of grant total, maximum of $1,000, are allowed for project coordinators that have not recieved a Special County/Reservation grant.

Participating landowners should have a committed dollar amount for the acres to be treated in the coming year, prior to grant submission.  This summarized information is used on the Herbicide Worksheet form.  Prior to submitting an application, project participants should have completed:

  • weed mapping of target noxioius weed infestations (GPS or hand drawn),
  • one year of cooperative work within the weed management area, and
  • identified a project coordinator.

The Trust Fund cannot fund:

  • capital improvement projects or annual herbicide for cropland or CRP practices,
  • equipment needs for the project participants,
  • biological control agents for landowners due to the Trust Fund supporting school insectaries, and
  • expenses to attend the grant hearings in Helena, MT.
