March 26 – The US Fish & Wildlife Service has announced a new funding opportunity to support projects that lead to the eradication of invasive species.

Recognizing the importance of eradication outcomes in invasive species management, the Department of the Interior has announced the availability of up to $3 million in funding from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law for projects that seek to eradicate invasive species.  While control and suppression of invasive species are important in many cases, the emphasis of this funding opportunity is on eradicating them from a defined area where it is a feasible and achievable management goal.  This funding provides an opportunity for us to invest in protecting our lands and waters by removing an entire population of invasive species and supporting a balanced ecosystem.

This announcement also supports the Department of the Interior’s restoration and resilience framework to leverage historic investments in climate and conservation and promote landscape-level outcomes across the nation. Through the Investing in America agenda, the Department is investing more than $2 billion to restore our nation’s lands and waters, which in turn helps meet conservation goals set through the America the Beautiful Initiative.
