Invasive Phragmites Control Fund

The Invasive Phragmites Control Fund is accepting proposals

The Invasive Species Centre is seeking proposals for grants to support groups or organizations to help control the spread of Phragmites.

The Invasive Phragmites Control Fund (IPCF) will help to support local, front line action on Phragmite control activities and expand those initiatives for a provincial wide Phragmites program.

The main objectives of the fund are to map and develop collaborative plans, expand and intensify Phragmites control measures and implementation, address the rapid spread of Phragmites and to increase the awareness and coordination between volunteers, landowners and improve overall capacity.

Funding priority will be given to 1) Mapping, monitoring and planning 2) Control measures; And 3) Control innovations and techniques.

The IPCF will support Phragmites projects that range from $2,500 to $25,000. Larger projects such as multi-partner and landscape scale collaborations will also be considered up to $50,000.

The Invasive Species Centre will be coordinating the Invasive Phragmites Control Fund with the help and support from:

  • Green Shovels Collaborative

  • Nature Conservancy of Canada

  • Ducks Unlimited Canada

  • Federation of Ontario Cottagers' Associations
