Grants for High School Fishing Clubs Offered by the MDC
The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) is offering grants to assist high school fishing clubs in providing quality fishing programs for their members.
In a news release from the MDC, grants up to $500 are available to clubs that participate in approved conservation activities, such as kids fishing clinics, fish habitat improvement projects, Stream Team cleanup, special fishing events, and others.
According to MDC Fisheries Programs Specialist Andrew Branson, the grant will help develop young men and women with an appreciation for the outdoors and conservation, along with sharing their passion for fishing with others. Grants can be used to help with travel, equipment, and other club needs.
To apply interested schools or club leaders should submit an online grant application at https://bit.ly/2RphowQ highlighting the conservation activity they plan to participate in.
Schools and clubs receiving grants are required to register with Missouri’s vendor system to receive funds. For instructions on this process, visit https://bit.ly/2Uulh5t.
