Funding For AIS Greeter and Management Programs
On January 12th, 2022, the Federation of Vermont Lakes and Ponds held a special event to discuss funding for AIS (aquatic invasive species) Greeter and Management Programs.
The Federation of Vermont Lakes and Ponds organized this virtual meeting to discuss funding of Aquatic Invasive Species (AIS) programs from many perspectives. The prevention and management of AIS in Vermont lakes are important shared goals involving lake associations and conservation groups, as well as local governments, and state and federal agencies. Looking into the future, needs for funding are increasing, while some sources of funding are expected to decrease, at least in the near-term. The goal of this program was to inform stakeholders of funding sources and to discuss ways to bridge funding gaps.
