The Montana Sage Grouse Habitat Conservation Program has extended the Pre-Application phase for the 2022 grant cycle. Pre-Proposal applications now must be submitted to the Program web application, https://sagegrouse.mt.gov/, no later than 5:00 pm on June 30, 2022.
The Pre-Proposal step allows the Program to review potential projects and provide feedback to would-be applicants to help them decide whether to submit a more detailed Complete Application for MSGOT’s formal consideration.
The Montana Sage Grouse Oversight Team (MSGOT) opened the 2022 grant application cycle on February 11, 2022 and is accepting grant applications for conservation leases, perpetual easements or restoration/enhancement projects; conservation projects located within the Central or Southeastern Service Areas will be given preference.
The grant cycle will remain open for 6 months. Completed applications must still be submitted to the Program web application no later than 5:00 pm on August 12, 2022. Late, faxed, or incomplete applications will not be considered. MSGOT will select grant recipients during a public meeting in October 2022.
Interested parties may schedule a meeting with Program staff. To schedule a meeting, send a request to Therese Hartman.
