The Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation in coordination with the Montana Invasive Species Councils offers state-funded grants for the prevention and control of aquatic invasive species (AIS). The goal of the grants is to protect the natural resources of Montana from severe and unacceptable damage from AIS by increasing local capacity and involvement to address AIS issues.

DNRC provides fiscal management of the grant program and approves funding decisions, while MISC manages the application and review process and provides recommendations to DNRC. Funding in the amount of $278,000/year for FY 20 and FY 21 was appropriated by the legislature. DNRC may incur up to 10% of the yearly appropriation for administration of the program.
