The Oregon Department of Agriculture (ODA) received $400,000 of new funds to award to priority noxious weed grant projects for the 2021-2023 biennium. This funding is for one grant cycle and will allow up to $20,000 for equipment purchases that must be connected to the purposed project.
ODA's goal is to fund projects that are restricted to
- the development of new innovative noxious weed projects,
- build on existing projects, or
- for programs to build a cooperative weed management area (CWMA) or other partnerships.
The funding is to implement new innovative projects that can help in early detection and rapid response weed control in areas impacted by invasive noxious weeds, while meeting critical noxious weed control goals in resource protection.
Grants will be awarded based on the Oregon State Weed Board (OSWB) priorities. The OSWB will review and recommend grants for award. The ODA director will review the list of recommend grants and will make the final decision on grant awards.
Grants will be awarded based on the availability of funds for a given grant cycle. ODA will pay only for completed work with approved invoices that is accepted by ODA. This cycle will not approve any time extensions. There will be one grant cycle with this funding.
