Colorado Noxious Weed Management Fund

Overview

In 1997, the Colorado Legislature established the Colorado Noxious Weed Management Fund to provide additional financial resources to communities, weed control districts, or other entities engaged in cooperative efforts to manage noxious weeds. Organized private interests as well as public agencies and local governments were eligible to apply for assistance provided that awarded funds were used to enhance weed management efforts within the State of Colorado. Over the five years that funding was available, the Colorado Department of Agriculture disbursed $1,255,000 for noxious weed management, education, and mapping. On average, every dollar of the State's investment was matched by more than five dollars of private, local, other state, and federal resources. Awards were made on a competitive basis and recommended by a committee of seven individuals representing the perspectives and experiences of professionals and elected officials in weed science, state weed management, Colorado government, public natural resource management, agriculture, local weed management, and the environment.
