State Aquatic Invasive Species Grant Program
In 2019, the Connecticut General Assembly (with strong encouragement from CFL!) established an Aquatic Invasive Species Stamp fee (Public Act 19-190) that applied to all registered boats using CT waters, to proved a dedicated funding source for the "Connecticut Lakes, Rivers, and Ponds Preservation Account." This account funds programs to protect the state's lakes, ponds, and rivers by addressing aquatic invasive species and cyanobacteria blooms.
Deadline is January 6, 2023
CFL Lakes Grants Program
In 2018 the CFL Board of Directors voted to create a CFL Lakes Grants Program. Under this program, the CFL requests applications from its members for financial grants to support projects in three categories: Lake Association Grant, and Lake and Watershed Research Grant. The CFL annually provides up to a total of $4000. Individual grants of up to $1000 have been awarded.
