Mid-Atlantic Panel On Aquatic Invasive Species Accepting Small Grant Proposals

The Mid-Atlantic Panel On Aquatic Invasive Species is now accepting applications for small grant proposals to support a variety of activities on aquatic species education and control.  The deadline for proposals is March 11.
Priorities for funding include--
-- Develop outreach and educational materials for classrooms and specific populations (KGray) to prevent the introduction and spread of AIS.
-- Conduct research on AIS issues in the region such as prevention, early detection, rapid
response, emerging invasions, and how climate change may influence AIS.
-- Conduct innovative approaches to AIS control/eradication, or control/eradicate a high
priority AIS population.
-- Continue to develop vector management strategies for states and the region.
-- Encourage states to implement AIS management plans.
Approximately $30,000 is available to fund several projects. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service funds will be administered by the Maryland Sea Grant Program as an award between the grant recipient’s institution and Maryland Sea Grant, University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
Projects that document how the funds can work as “seed money” or to leverage other funding are strongly encouraged.
