Michigan DNR Offers Habitat Grants
Grant funding is available for organizations in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula looking to enhance deer habitats on non-state land. The state’s DNR has announced a total of $100,000 in grants will be handed out to projects producing tangible habitat improvements and building long-term partnerships between the DNR and outside organizations. Organizations eligible to receive grants include those whose formal mission is to promote wildlife conservation and/or hunting, industrial landowners with more than 10-thousand acres, or private land affiliations where two or more unrelated people jointly own 400 acres or more. Grant amounts range from $2,000 to $15,000. Applications are due by March 1st and can be found on the Michigan DNR website.
