The application period for the Michigan Department of Natural Resources Deer Private Land Assistance Network grant program is now open.
This cooperative grant program, known as Deer PLAN, is designed to fund deer habitat improvement projects on private land in the northern Lower Peninsula. The awarded funds will be used to produce tangible, on-the-ground efforts that improve deer habitat and provide quality deer hunting locations.
Landowners with property in Alcona, Alpena, Crawford, Montmorency, Oscoda and Presque Isle counties are encouraged to apply for the Deer PLAN program.
Project applications are due by Feb. 28, and successful applicants will be notified by March 17.
