Document Description
The Kings County Agricultural Commissioner/Sealer (Ag. Commissioner) is applying for funding from the State of California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) 2023 Noxious Weed Grant Program (NWGP). The CDFA is offering weed control funding as part of CDFA's cooperative and comprehensive effort to prevent the introduction of invasive species in the state and to facilitate cost-effective control or eradication of invasive species that have entered or have been established in the state. The NWGP funds allow applicants to implement strategic weed control/abatement projects that protects agriculture, biodiversity, water resources, fire safety and/or climate resiliency. Among the grant eligible costs are: personnel services (i.e., program administration, outreach and education, and surveying and mapping weed populations); supplies; equipment; herbicides, contractors/consultants; travels cost, etc. If successful in receiving funding, the Ag. Commissioner will use the funds to offset (i.e., recover) already incurring costs from the-Ag. Commissioner's weed control/abatement program. The Ag. Commissioner envisions using the funds to apply herbicides to eradicate Alligator weed on both private property (with permission) and public property within Kings County.
