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