2023 AIS Grants

County AIS Grants will disburse funds from the state of Minnesota's Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) prevention aid awarded to Meeker County to prevent the introduction of AIS and limit its spread. $103,500 has been allocated for 2023 AIS Prevention Projects. Those eligible to propose projects and compete for available funds included community organizations, townships, watershed organizations, lake associations, consultants' firms, and county departments. Meeker County has released the 2023 Request for Proposals, which includes Grant Application and Fulfillment Terms. The grant application deadline was November 2nd, 2022. Grant applications for 2023 are currently under review. The County AIS Advisory Committee met December 14th to recommend award for 2023 projects. The county commissioners will consider projects recommended for award at their January 17th, 2023 meeting. Applicants will be informed within 15 business days of approval by the County Board of Commissioners.
