Details on this page apply to the previous round of funding. Check back in September 2020 when the next application period opens and updated program details are released.

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.

  • If you are not a County Agricultural Inspector (CAI), please contact your 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.



We expect the next application period to begin in September 2020; updated program materials will be posted at that time.

To learn more about how the program works, read last year's Request for Proposals (RFP). This grant program is subject to change so you should carefully read the updated RFP when it is posted.
