Funding Request Support

It’s time for submission of funding requests for the Maine Milfoil Initiative, a partnership of Maine lake organizations to obtain continuation funding for their ongoing Maine Lakes Invasive Species/Habitat Restoration initiative to attack milfoil in our lakes.The partnership is seeking competitive grant funding, State funding and private sector contributions to augment the Federal appropriation of $1,250,000 that they are seeking. These funds would be used to further the additional use of the “best practices” model developed with the initial grant to other Maine lakes.

As property values, recreational usage, and lake habitat are effected we should all make use of the sample support letter to let our representatives know our views. Click here to see a sample letter.
