Have Predators? Want to do a water project? GIP can help with that.

The Utah Grazing Improvement Program has two funding opportunities currently open.  One is for control of Predatory Animals.  Livestock producers suffering predation losses are eligible. This is a cost reimbursable program that will provide 50% reimbursement up to the contracted amount for practices used to stop or reduce predation.  $150,000 total is available. Applications will be taken until June 17, 2022.

 

The second opportunity is for small livestock producers (50 animal units or less) for any projects that will improve grazing management on federal, state or private land.  $100,000 is available with no project receiving more than $10,000.

Applications will be taken until June 17, 2022.
