The Habitat Conservation Trust Foundation (HCTF) has created a new granting program to fund invasive mussel monitoring in British Columbia’s lakes and rivers. This program is made possible by a $450,000 contribution from BC’s Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy (ENV).
For more information about this program, please begin by reviewing the Invasive Mussels Lake Monitoring Fund Program Guidelines.
If you would like to apply for funding under this program, you will need to complete Part 1 and 2 of the application form.
Please read the instructions carefully before beginning your application.
You will also need to read the new British Columbia Dreissenid Mussel Lake Monitoring Field Protocol which describes in detail the protocol that must be followed when collecting samples with funding from this program. The Field Protocol document also describes the risk assessment criteria for water bodies that forms the basis of Part 2 of the application.
