LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Deer habitat improvement grants are available for Michigan’s Upper Peninsula.

The state Department of Natural Resources says March 1 is the deadline to apply for the $100,000 in funding through the Deer Habitat Improvement Partnership Initiative.

The competitive grant program is designed to enhance deer habitat on non-state lands in the Upper Peninsula.

Sportsmen’s clubs, conservation districts and other organizations with a formal mission to promote wildlife conservation or hunting are eligible for the grants. Individual grants range from $2,000 to $15,000.

The initiative is supported by the state’s Deer Range Improvement Program, which is funded by a portion of deer hunting license revenue.
