The DNRC Reclamation and Development Grants Program (RDGP) is now accepting grant applications for :
RDG Planning Grants – up to $50,000
Grants are available to any city, county, Tribe, conservation district, or other local government subdivision in Montana.
Proposed grants must provide natural resource benefits in one of two categories:
Reclamation projects that do one of the following: 1) reclaim land, water or other resources adversely affected by mineral development; 2) mitigate damage to public resources caused by mineral development; 3) research, demonstrate, or provide technical assistance to promote the wise use of Montana minerals; 4) Investigate and remediate sites where hazardous wastes or regulated substances threaten public health or the environment; or 5) research to assess existing or potential environmental damage resulting from mineral development or non-renewable resources.
Crucial state need: Projects that meet a crucial state need must prevent or eliminate damage to natural resources or capture extraordinary public benefit that would otherwise be lost. They must have a regional or statewide importance. Public benefit from implementation of this type of project must directly relate to natural resources.
