Project Summary

The video, Success Stories From Montana's Noxious Weed Trust Fund highlights the fund's activities in the areas of research, education, and management.

The Montana Noxious Weed Trust Fund grant program was established by the 1985 Montana Legislature to provide funding for the development and implementation of weed management programs; provide for research and development of innovative weed management techniques, including biological control; and to support educational and other research projects that benefit Montana citizens. The grant program is designed to assist counties, local communities, researchers, and educators in their efforts to solve a variety of weed problems in Montana.

The program provides cost-share funding for local cooperative weed management areas and education and research projects, including non-chemical research and demonstration programs. Funding is generally through a government entity (local weed district, conservation district, extension office, or university). Assistance in writing a grant proposal is provided through your local government entity. The Montana Noxious Weed Trust Fund Advisory Council reviews applications, hears applicant testimony, and recommends funding to the Director of the Montana Department of Agriculture. Final funding is approved by the Director.
