Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies (Association) and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS)
Grants to USA and territories states, groups of states, agencies, nonprofit organizations, and institutions of higher education for large scale projects to conserve and restore wildlife and fish habitats. Applicants must submit an initial proposal and ensure that required registrations are current prior to applying. Grant proposals must address regional or national level funding priorities of state fish and wildlife agencies.
The primary goal of both programs is to fund projects that address regional or national priority needs of the State fish and wildlife agencies (States) and their partners that are beyond the scope and capabilities of a single State. Eligible grant proposals are reviewed by the Association’s National Grants Committee (NGC) with the assistance of one or more technical committees. Proposals must address eligible activities in one or more of the Association’s selected Strategic Priorities to be considered. Strategic Conservation Priorities are developed annually by the Association, and are used to guide proposal development and grant selection for the program.
Projects awarded under T-MSCGP may use the funds for sport fisheries and wildlife management and research projects, boating access development, hunter safety and education, aquatic education, aquatic R3 programs, fish and wildlife habitat improvements, and other purposes consistent with the enabling legislation.
Grant awards issued under this program typically include projects for biological research, training, species population status assessment, fish and wildlife conservation outreach, data collection regarding hunter and angler participation, hunter and aquatic education, assessing the economic value of fishing and hunting, and regional or multistate habitat needs assessments.
