About the DNRC
Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation's mission is to help ensure that Montana's land and water resources provide benefits for present and future generations.
DNRC administers a wide range of grants and loans for Montana, assisting cities and towns, conservation districts, private landowners, and other groups in managing natural resource issues at the local level.
Irrigation is the dominant commercial use of Montana’s water and is a key component of Montana’s economy, accounting for 96% of surface and ground water withdrawals. The irrigation development grant program was created to increase the value of irrigated crops while preserving natural resources and the environment for future generations.
Projects typically address one or more of these program objectives:
- Increase irrigation efficiencies through water conservation
- Expand or sustain irrigated acreage
- Increase production of high-value crops
- Improve management of irrigation systems
- Improve inter-basin cooperation among all water users.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
- Irrigation development grants are available to private for profit, private nonprofit, governmental and Tribal entities and individual and groups in Montana.
