The Montana GLCI is accepting applications for grazing lands demonstration projects for 2021. Ranking Criteria for applications include the significance for benefitting PRIVATE grazing lands in Montana. Projects must be initiated in 2021 and funding will be allocated on an annual basis, which is dependent upon the yearly budget. Submission of the application does not guarantee that the project will be funded.

Applications will be accepted from a group of individuals, non-governmental organizations, State or local units of government.

The projects must include some aspect of private grazing lands   improvement and/or management. Projects must be initiated and sponsored through local, groups of individuals and/or groups (that is local conservation districts, grazing districts and so forth.) The Montana GLCI steering committee places special emphasis on collaboration and working with partners (that is NRCS, MSU Extension, Conservation Districts, and so forth.) Individual projects will be considered only if the project provides broad scale, community wide education and benefits the greater good. All applicants must show a one-to-one match for project cost. Applicant’s match may be from in-kind contributions and should be noted on the budget form under in-kind or other funding sources.

Application deadline is March 1st 2021.
