2019 Grant Application Information
The Benton County Agriculture and Wildlife Protection Program (AWPP) funds a merit-based, cost-share, reimbursement grant program. Grant funds are still available for operations that are concerned about conflicts with beavers. However, the application window for 2019 grants related to all other types of wildlife closed on August 16, 2019. Those grants were awarded on September 16, 2019.
Grant awardees may purchase the deterrents approved in their grant award notification letters. A reimbursement request form and receipts for approved purchases should be submitted to the county office. Reimbursement funds can only be applied to new purchases made after the grant award date. Retroactive costs or purchases made prior to the grant award date will not be allowed. Checks in the name of the applicant will be issued after deterrents are installed and a site visit by County staff has been conducted. Successful applicants are required to keep project records, report conflicts, evaluate their project, and abide by program restrictions. Necessary forms may be downloaded below.
