Invasive Species Funding Opportunity

When the Oakland County Parks and Recreation (OCPR) millage passed by voters in November 2020, a portion of the funds were allocated for county-wide invasive species projects. Projects are intended to demonstrate best practices, treat high priority invasive species, increase awareness, and/or improve habitat. These funds are not meant to be inclusive of all invasive species related projects in Oakland County and communities should strive to allocate dedicated funding to invasive species management and habitat improvement within their own jurisdictions.

Approximately $250,000 has been allocated in the OCPRC budget for funding Projects in Fiscal Year 2022 (Oakland County Fiscal Year begins Oct. 1).

Please note, funds will not be directly distributed to recipients. OCPR will directly pay contractors for services to complete approved Projects according to the Project applications and budgets.
