Renewable Resource Planning Grants
Montana Department of Natural Resources & Conservation
The DNRC Renewable Resource Grant and Loan Program (RRGL) is accepting planning grant applications. Maximum award amounts are $15,000 or $8,000, depending on the type of planning needed.
Planning grants are available to government entities for planning activities which lead to an RRGL program project application to conserve, manage, develop or protect a renewable resource in Montana. Planning activities funded through this program include, but are not limited to:
- Contracted technical services necessary to produce or update a preliminary engineering report (PER) meeting the requirements of the Uniform Application OR to meet the requirements of Step. 4 Technical Narrative of the RRGL application.
- Other resource contracted services such as capital improvement plans (CIP), growth plans, sample collections, surveys, studies, and other activities that lead to an RRGL application.
The program does not cover costs associated with final design, aquatic invasive species, in-kind activity, or indirect and/or program costs.
