Michigan DNR Offers Grants for Projects that Benefit Wildlife

The Michigan Department Of Natural Resources is offering $1 million in grants to improve dwelling places for wildlife.

The grants will be given out to local and tribal governments, as well as nonprofits.

Grants will be given under the Wildlife Habitat Grant Program.

Each grant will be at least $15,000 dollars.

The recipients of the grants will also be required to match at least 10% of the funds.

In years past, Funds were used for projects like converting farmland into small game habitats and conducting prescribed burns.

The program is funded through the sales of hunting and fishing licenses.

The application deadline is July 26.
