Grant Overview and Goals

Counties, municipalities, and weed management entities (including weed management areas) may apply for grants to address noxious weeds and invasive plants, with priority given to species on the noxious weed list. This grant request is not to be confused with the Cooperative Weed Management Area (CWMA) grant program administered by the Minnesota Board of Water and Soil Resources (BWSR). 

Applicant Eligibility

Any authorized representative of a county, municipality, or weed management entity in Minnesota may apply.

  • Applicants not from tribal nations must consult with their local CAI to discuss the RFP prior to submitting a project.
  • Prior to completing an application, applicants must have approval from their financial authority to participate with this grant.

Amount Available

We expect to award approximately $93,000 in Fiscal Year 2022. The maximum award amount is $5,000.


Applications will be accepted until December 3, 2021 or until all funds are depleted, whichever comes first, on a first come, first served basis. Incomplete applications will not be accepted. Applications must be submitted through our online application system.
