Landowners can apply for grands for district board

The Kiowa Conservation District Board has received a grant from the Colorado State Conservation Board that allows it to conduct a cost-share program for implementing conservation practices as they relate to list “B” noxious weed species such as Canada thistle, Diffuse knapweed, Leafy spurge, Musk thistle, Toadflax (Dalmatian and Yellow) to name a few.

To participate, the approved applicants must agree to have a conservation plan prepared by NRCS (Natural Resources Conservation Service) to include the desired practice and two years of management after practice installation. The amount of cost share available for any one landowner is one-half the cost up to a maximum of $2500.

Interested individuals can sign-up now with applications due by Feb. 12. All applicants are then ranked using criteria developed by the Conservation District Board with technical input from NRCS. Applications are funded beginning with those with the highest ranking on down until all funds are expended. To participate in the program, landowners need to contact Eileen at the Kiowa Conservation District office, 303-621-2070 ext. 101, or online at www.kiowacd.org to get an application form or information on this program.
