In 2017, the MAPAIS is offering a small grants competition and encourages interested groups and individuals to submit proposals for possible funding. Broad participation from groups and individuals concerned about aquatic invasive species (AIS) issues in the mid-Atlantic region is encouraged! A proposal submission must address an AIS problem as part of a one-year project.
Program priorities: The following elements are of high priority to the MAPAIS and should be considered in the preparation of proposals:
- Activities that will increase public understanding of and compliance with the prevention and control of AIS
- Clear description of proposed actions, products, and other deliverables
- Relevance to the mission and priorities of MAPAIS
- Regional significance
- Leveraging of other funding sources
