Invasive Species Grant Program Dollars at Work

  • The Michigan Invasive Species Grant Program (MISGP) - a joint effort of the Michigan departments of Natural Resources; Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy; and Agriculture and Rural Development - is part of a statewide initiative launched in 2014 to help prevent and control invasive species in Michigan.

    The program supports projects throughout the state that prevent, detect, manage and eradicate invasive species on the ground and in the water.

    In the five years since its inception, the program has awarded over $18 million to 112 projects resulting in management of invasive species including phragmites, Japanese knotweed and oak wilt on more than 35,000 acres of land and water statewide.

    Grant projects have leveraged $6.7 million in matching funds and in-kind services to support prevention and management efforts. Get an in-depth look at the projects that have been funded by these grant dollars.
