Exciting New Activities for the Yampa River Leafy Spurge Project!
In late 2017, YRLSP partners began working on a grant application for submission to the Yampa-White-Green Basin Roundtable (YWG-BRT). Our goal was to secure funding to move our efforts forward in several key areas. In October of 2018, we successfully completed the application process, securing $89,000 from the Colorado Water Conservation Board (CWCB) Water Supply Reserve Fund (WSRF) Yampa-White-Green Basin account. Our grant application also included matching fund commitments from Moffat County ($15,000 over two years), Routt County (over two years) and the University of Wyoming ($12,600 over two years). Partner agencies and organizations will contribute more than $34,000 toward in-kind match over the next two and half years. Friends of the Yampa stepped up to serve as fiscal agent and official applicant for the grant.
