Future Fisheries Program grant deadline Nov. 30
By Moosetrack Megan


Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks reminds landowners, watershed groups and others that the deadline to apply for this round of Future Fisheries Improvement Program grants is Nov. 30.

The goal of FWP’s Future Fisheries Program is to restore rivers, streams and lakes to improve Montana’s wild fish habitat. Entities can receive funding for qualifying projects that benefit Montana’s wild fish. Each project is assessed by an independent review panel and final funding decisions are made by the Fish & Wildlife Commission. Grants will be awarded early in 2017.

To learn more about the Future Fisheries Improvement Program, and to download the grant application form, go to the Fishing home page on FWP’s website at fwp.mt.gov/fishing, or call FWP at 406-444-2432.

Completed Future Fisheries Improvement Program applications must be received on or before Nov. 30 and should be sent electronically to mmcgree@mt.gov. Paper applications can be sent to Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, Fisheries Habitat Bureau, P.O. Box 200701, Helena, MT 59620-0701.
