The Douglas County Conservation District has an opportunity for landowners to apply for noxious weed control assistance. This grant will assist with a 50% cost share up to $500.00 per property for chemical and biological control methods for weeds on the Colorado State Noxious Weed “A” and “B” list species. Contractors labor will be funded. Landscape projects will not be funded. If you are interested, you can obtain an application via email DCCDistrict@gmail.com or on our website at dcconservation.com. Please complete the application form and mail or email it to our office.
Interested landowners can apply for assistance in controlling list A and B noxious weed species on their property. The district will assist landowners with a 50% cost share grant up to $500.00 per property, but not to exceed $60.00 per acre for approved biological and/or chemical application control methods. Herbicides, biological (insects, goats) and contracted labor will be cost shared, not landowner’s labor, and not landscaping costs. This grant for noxious weed control will be available until the funds have been spent.
We appreciate your interest in the Douglas County 2018 Noxious Weed Assistance Program. The conservation practice that is applied for, and if approved, needs to be completed and bills need to be submitted by October 31, 2018.
Please complete the application and return it by April 19, 2018. Applications will be reviewed by the district board and they will be ranked according to the district’s ranking criteria. Priority will go to landowners that do not have other funding assistance. You will be notified in early May after your application is reviewed if it has been approved or not. If your application is submitted after the April 19th deadline, those applications will be reviewed and ranked if there are available funds remaining.
