Dam Management Grants, Deadline Nov. 15

The Department of Natural Resources has announced its Dam Management Grant Program is now open for proposals. The second year of this grant opportunity will provide $350,000 in Fiscal Year 2014 to address Michigan’s failing dam infrastructure through the funding of dam removals and critical repair/maintenance.

The DNR’s Dam Management Grant Program is focused on the growing issue of abandoned, unused or hazardous dams in Michigan. The purpose of the program is to provide funding and technical assistance to local and state units of government, non-profit groups and individuals to manage dam removals or repair/major maintenance projects that will enhance aquatic resources and fishing opportunities, and also to reduce infrastructure costs and improve public safety in Michigan.

There were six recipients as part of the Dam Management Grant Program’s first year, when $2.35 million was granted.
