New Mexico Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department: Invasive Plant Management in Forested AreasDeadline: December 20, 2019
The New Mexico Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department will support organizations that address the management of invasive plants on state, private, and public non-federal lands from Cooperative Weed Management Areas (CWMAs) where noxious weeds threaten forested acres. The primary goal is to increase local capacity to manage and prevent invasions of noxious weeds in forested areas. Projects must emphasize prevention and treatment of invasive plants. Locally-driven CWMAs have been shown to be vehicles for implementing weed management programs. Therefore, this program emphasizes the use of existing CWMAs or the creation of new CWMAs.
Projects must address any or all of the following:
- Awareness and education
- Prevention and early detection
- Inventory and mapping
- Planning and coordination
- Integrated weed management
- Monitoring and evaluation
Amount: A total of $76,500 is available to award multiple contracts that range from $5,000-$20,000. A 1:1 match is required.
Eligibility: Non-federal governmental entities involved with a CWMA, including tribes and pueblos (as long as other federal money is not involved).
