The deadline for landowners, watershed groups and others to apply for this summer’s Future Fisheries Improvement Program grants is May 15.
The goal of the 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 and Wildlife Commission.
