Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council and Florida Invasive Species Partnership Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area Grant

The Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council solicits grant proposals for Cooperative Invasive Species Management Area (CISMA) projects in Florida. The intent of this grant program is to provide funding to Florida Cooperative Invasive Species Management Areas (CISMAs) who will advance the Florida Exotic Pest Plant Council (FLEPPC) and the Florida Invasive Species Partnership (FISP) missions through partnership led efforts (e.g. events, workshops, workdays, outreach, etc.), which focus on non-native invasive plants and their impacts on the natural areas and economy of Florida. Proposals are accepted from individuals, public or private nonprofit organizations, and academic institutions on behalf of all Florida CISMAs as shown on www.floridainvasives.org/cismas.html. For 2018, winners will be announced via the FLEPPC listserv and FLCISMA listserv in March 2019 and will have 12 months to complete the project (through March 2020). Winning CISMAs must present a summary of results via poster or oral presentation at the 2020 FLEPPC annual meeting and provide a summary article or PDF file of any final product (brochure, sign, etc.). Results may also be used in the FLEPPC quarterly newsletter.
