Rep. Pettalia and Michigan DNR to host public meeting on Deer Habitat Grants


If you live in Northern Lower Michigan and you or your organization are looking for ways to improve deer habitat in the area, then this meeting might be just what you need.
This Saturday, State Rep. Peter Pettalia will be hosting a public meeting alongside the Michigan DNR to discuss a new assistance program, Deer Private Land Assistance Network or PLAN. Here, local organizations and private property owners will be able to learn first hand how to apply and what the criteria is for state grants that go toward projects aimed at improving deer habitat.
This new program is for Northern Lower Michigan with an initial funding of $50,000 and the deadline for submitting project applications is May 14th. Grants will be awarded in the amount of $2,000 to $10,000 through a competitive application process, and will go to tangible, on-the-ground deer habitat improvements such as mast producing tree and shrub plantings, wildlife opening creation or maintenance, and warm or cool season herbaceous plantings.
1:30pm                                                                                                                                                Sanctuary Inn & Conference Center 1000 US 23 North Alpena, MI 49707
If you are interested in a Deer PLAN grant or know someone who might be, then you should come out to Representative Pettalia’s meeting this Saturday to learn more about this exciting new program.
