Feral Cat Grant Program


Due to statutory changes made during the 2021 legislative session and Public Act 21-90, the following programs will not open until October 31, 2021:

  • Feral Cat Program
  • Low-Income Program

Statutory changes made in Public Act 21-90 include an increase in allocation to the Feral Cat Program and an increase in reimbursement to participating veterinarians for the sterilization/vaccination of cats and dogs. We are currently in the process of making changes to these programs to implement the statutory revisions.

We appreciate your cooperation as we implement these changes.

Questions about the Feral Cat Grant Program for fiscal year 2022 can be directed to the Animal Population Control Program (APCP) by email ( or by calling 860-713-2507.
