Hamilton County SWCD secures $70,900 Clean Water Indiana Grant for Invasive Species Education and Restoration Initiatives
Written by Claire Lane
The Hamilton County Soil and Water Conservation District (SWCD) is delighted to announce it has been awarded a $70,900 Clean Water Indiana grant from the Indiana State Department of Agriculture. The grant will empower the Hamilton County Invasives Partnership (HIP) to offer a variety of invasive species educational programs and trainings as well as a small grant program through which county residents can receive financial support to remove invasive species from their property.
The detailed program framework, including application procedures for small grants, training schedules, and educational resources, will be made available to the public in early 2024. We encourage individuals, landowners, and community organizations to stay tuned for further announcements and opportunities to get involved.
“We work with so many landowners who want to do more to fight invasives on their properties, but resources are limited,” said Claire Lane, SWCD Urban Conservationist and HIP Coordinator. “This grant will allow us to provide the financial support that can get a lot of Hamilton County natural areas back on track toward ecological balance.”
