The newly consolidated Invasive Species Grant Program will combine previous opportunities, such as the Aquatic Invasive Species Spread Prevention and the Aquatic and Terrestrial Invasive Species Early Detection/Rapid Response grants, to create a single grant program designed to support projects that target both aquatic and terrestrial invasive species. In addition, the Invasive Species Grant program will allow applications for two new categories: Lake Management Planning and Aquatic and Terrestrial Invasive Species Research. Applications are due Friday, February 15, 2019 at 3:00 PM.

We are offering a webinar on the grant program on Thursday, January 17th from 10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. During the webinar, staff from NYSDEC's Invasive Species program will describe grant program requirements, eligible project types, application evaluation and scoring. Staff from Grants Reform will also demonstrate how to apply for the grant using the Grants Gateway.

* Special note for hunters: most hunting zones do not align with DEC's regional boundaries, so you won't find hunting seasons listed in the regional calendars. Use the statewide calendar instead.
