Request for Proposals (RFP) are
being sought from eligible partners to fund the
implementation or expansion of innovative pilot projects
to prevent the introduction or spread of Aquatic
Invasive Species (AIS) into the surface waters of
Minnesota and to assess their effectiveness.
The Initiative Foundation will award
a total of $3.6 million to fund a limited number of
pilot projects. This grant was approved by the Minnesota
Legislature from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy
Amendment Fund, administered by the Lessard-Sams Outdoor
Heritage Council (LSOHC).
The Request for Proposals process is
open to all Minnesota-based local government units,
tribal entities and 501(c)(3) organizations.
Visit the Initiative Foundation website
for further details and an online application.
