The Vector Habitat Remediation Program

Printer Friendly
Font Size Extra Large Font Size Large Font Size Default

In 2005, a ballot measure was passed by property owners providing the Department of Environmental Health Vector Control Program additional funding to support mosquito, vector and disease control services. The ballot designated a portion of the funding to be used for a Vector Habitat Remediation Program (Program). The Program promotes long-term solutions for controlling mosquito breeding habitat and provides increased protection to the public from mosquito-borne diseases.

Under this Program, grant funding is offered to landowners and managers, including public sector entities, to physically alter chronic mosquito breeding sites in ways that will reduce mosquito breeding habitats and improve the effectiveness of mosquito breeding control measures.  The Program provides a strong focus on designing, modifying and maintaining wetlands and stormwater facilities to function in a way that will reduce or eliminate mosquito breeding habitat while balancing water quality, biological, aesthetic and hydrological values. 

The Program offers two types of grants: directed and competitive. Directed grants are limited to $50,000 per individual project and competitive grants are limited to $500,000 per individual project.

Applications for Direct Grants are accepted year round.

Applications for Competitive Grants are now being accepted for Fiscal Year 2014/15.
