Horticulture Fund Grant
The Michigan Legislature created the Horticulture Fund within the state treasury on October 31, 2003, through a revision to The Insect Pests and Plant Diseases Act, Act 189 of 1931, as revised. Up to $70,000 of funds will be generated each year through increases in nursery license fees. For FY’24 there will be approximately $60,000 to be awarded. The fund was created with the following mission: “to provide for research projects, to develop and improve training programs, and to develop outreach materials for the purposes of safeguarding plants and plant products from unwanted plant pests.”
This is a competitive grant program. Horticulture Fund grants will be awarded up to a maximum annual amount of $20,000 per approved proposal.
