Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources, Aquatic Invasive Species Grants

Description: The Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) Grant data set represents locations where Aquatic Invasive Species Grants have been awarded. The lakes, rivers, streams, and sometimes counties or towns, that the grant focuses on (as opposed to the entity to which the grant was awarded) are represented in this data set.

Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) control grants provide funding to prevent and control the spread of AIS in the waters of the state. Grant awards may fund up to 50 percent of the cost of a project up to a maximum grant amount of $75,000, except for Early Detection and Rapid Response projects which are eligible for a maximum grant of 50 percent of project costs up to a maximum of $10,000. Eligible projects include:

  • Education, prevention and planning projects
  • Established infestation control projects
  • Early detection and rapid response projects
