Funding available for shoreland projects (06/06/2004)
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is making $300,000 available

for grant proposals for protecting or restoring native shoreline habitat across the state.

Grants recipients will be reimbursed for a maximum of 75 percent of the total project costs. Applicants must be able to fund at least 25 percent of the total project costs from non-state sources. Matching funds may be cash, volunteer labor, and in-kind contributions of materials, equipment and services.

"This is an opportunity for homeowners, local communities and conservation organizations to help enhance and protect fish habitat in their local lakes, streams and rivers," said John Hiebert, DNR shoreland habitat coordinator. "A total of 29 projects were funded for $300,000 in 2003-2004."

Applications for grants are available on the Minnesota DNR Web site at www.dnr.state.mn.us. On the DNR home page, click on "grants" and then on "habitat improvement." Applications are also available by calling the DNR Information Center at (651) 296-6157 or toll free 1-888-MINNDNR (646-6367). Completed grant applications are due by Sept 1.

Successful applicants will be notified in January. Funds will be made available to successful applicants after July 1, 2005.

The grants are funded from Minnesota State Lottery proceeds deposited in the heritage enhancement account. Grants are administered through the DNR Division of Fisheries and designed with guidance from local DNR fisheries managers.
