Aquatic Invasive Species Pilot Project Requests for Proposals Open Through Sept. 15

Requests 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).

At least two rounds of inquiries will be reviewed: one in late 2014 and another in early 2015. Visit the Initiative Foundation website for further details and an online application.

The deadline for submission is September 15, 2014.
