The Livestock Loss Board is now accepting loss prevention grant applications. Applications are due by Jan. 31, 2022, and can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to P.O. Box 202005, Helena, MT 59620. Applications are available at www.llb.mt.gov or a paper copy may be requested by regular mail. This is a new grant form and organizations representing a livestock owner(s) will be required to complete a grant supplement form. Grants will be issued in March.
Our board will be meeting in February to review the applications. Areas with the greatest predation due to wolves or grizzly bears will be given the highest priority. Grant awards will be provided in March 2022. Applicants and the general public are welcomed to attend during our board meeting. A date and location for the meeting will be posted at a later date on our website www.llb.mt.gov.
