2018 ENRTF Proposals Received - by Funding Priority Topic Area

2018 Environment and Natural Resouces Trust Fund Proposals Received - by Funding Priority Topic Area

For the FY 2018 and FY 2019 biennium (July 1, 2017 - June 30, 2019), approximately $50.8 million is available each year (total = $101,656,000) for funding from the Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund. As of July 15, 2017, the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources (LCCMR) received 217 proposals requesting a total of approximately $183 million. This RFP process is for funding beginning July 1, 2018. Approximately $45.7 million is remaining from the Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund to be available to recommend for project funding from the Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund (ENRTF). NOTE: $5,089,000 of FY19 ENRTF funds were expended by the 2017 Legislature.

The LCCMR reviewed, evaluated, and ranked all proposals received. On September 13, the LCCMR selected 101 proposals requesting a total of approximately $120.4 million to invite in for a presentation before the Commission for further consideration.

Proposal presentations are scheduled for September 26, 27, and 28 and October 3, 4, and 5. The proposal presentations will be used by the LCCMR to determine on October 17-18 which projects the LCCMR will recommend for funding to the 2018 Minnesota Legislature. Check the LCCMR scheduled for the most up-to-date information on important process dates.
