Grants to Utah government agencies, institutions of higher education, political subdivisions, conservation districts, and government, tribal, and private landowners for the prevention and management of non-native plants. Funding is intended for projects demonstrating a high likelihood of succeeding at a state or county level.
For FY 2023-24, UDAF is looking for projects that target high-priority species and will reduce the number of outlier populations.
Early detection and rapid response
Treating critical acres that protect larger land use areas
Monitoring and preventing the spread of small populations and new introductions
Monitoring and rehabilitating established infestations
Eligible Organizations: Universities; Cooperative Weed Management Areas (CWMA’s); County Weed Boards; Federal or State Agencies; Federal, State, Tribal, or Private Landowners; Conservation Districts, nonprofits, and/or other Political Subdivisions.
Invasive Species Mitigation (ISM) Grants will not be awarded for mapping without active on-the-ground treatment. A minimal amount of Noxious Weed Grant funding (less than $5,000) can be used for the purchase of incidental equipment needed to complete a project. The purchase of large pieces of equipment, such as four-wheelers and large spray tanks is not allowed unless prior permission has been given. Funds listed in the (Other) category within the budget and scope of work will require an attached budget sheet defining how funds will be allocated.

All applications will require a Utah Spatial Invasive Infestation Project Analysis (SIIPA) included. If you are not familiar with the Utah SIIPA, you will need to contact Aaron Eagar.
It is highly recommended that multi-year proposals include a 3-5 year management plan, an extensive monitoring component, solid participating partners, and a strong restoration component.
For FY 2023-24, projects will be funded for the current year only, with the possibility of renewing funding for a multi-year project, based on available funds. Funding for projects will begin on July 1, 2023, and terminate on June 30, 2024.
